Independent Living

The new Somerset Choices website guides people through self-help forms, provides easy access to information and a directory of local services, products, groups and events in their local area. Such as care homes, help at home, mobility equipment, personal assistants, lunch clubs, exercise groups and breaks for carers.

Visit the site here:

The site is now live in a test version – which means people can access the site but lots of work is still going on behind the scenes to improve the content and respond to feedback. More local care and support providers are also being encouraged to upload their details so that the site contains a really comprehensive directory of local services.

If you have any initial feedback on the website please email:

There will be promotional activity to raise awareness of Somerset Choices including newspaper and radio advertising and events across the county.
