Young Somerset has a vision of a Somerset where young people feel a sense of belonging, a desire to contribute to their communities and have a future that is not limited by poor access to opportunities and services.
Somerset Big Tent is a VCSE (Voluntary Community Social Enterprise) alliance of emotional wellbeing and mental health providers for children and young people aged 8-18 within Somerset, operating under a quality and safety assurance process. Somerset Big Tent, funded by CCG and facilitated by Young Somerset, is designed to broker the best local solution for a child / young person’s needs, making it easy for them, their parents / carers, and professionals to access support. The Big Tent operates across Somerset, building awareness and partnerships with statutory organisations (including GP surgeries, CAMHS, schools) so that they can signpost effectively.
