Welcome to Somerset Youth & Community Service
There have been major changes to youth work and youth services in Somerset and there are more to come.
As part of a three-year change programe, our services were reorganised in the period April 2011 to September 2012 to focus our efforts on delivering youth work in the larger commuities, and supporting voluntary groups and local people to start and run their own clubs and projects.
The next stage of the change programme will see SCC stop being a direct provider of youth work by March 2014. Until then we'll retain some direct delivery in Taunton, Bridgwater and Yeovil. Alongside this, we'll focus on helping communities start, sustain and improve local youth provision. This means providing training and support for local staff and volunteers, advising on building management and helping ensure quality standards are understood. We'll also continue to support young people's participation through UK Youth Parliament and other projects across the county.
If you have any questions about the service, or suggestions about the sort of things you'd like to see on the website, please let us know and we'll do our best.
