We manage Somerset You Can Do on behalf of Somerset County Council. Volunteers through this programme provide support to individuals in their local community. They support people to access local activities and local support services to improve their circumstances and re-engage in their local community.
Our volunteers support digital inclusion. They work with local people to help develop their ICT skills through a combination of support in their home and drop-in sessions delivered to peer groups from local community venues. They provide people with vital advice and guidance on how to access online utilities and support services.
We also co-ordinate a network of over 120 centres for older people to support active living. Our volunteers provide information, support and advice on improving health and wellbeing and actively involve older people in activities that focus on improving their personal circumstances.
