Somerset is a great place to live, work and play in – we all know this, and we also know that it can be so much more.
Our vision for Somerset is simple.
Our Vision makes it clear that we need to have closer working partnerships across the public sector, but also with the voluntary sector and private industry too in order to succeed.
Our biggest budget area, looking after vulnerable adults and our elderly population, is hugely rewarding.
From caring for vulnerable children and providing great schools where they are needed, right the way through helping young people find training and jobs, our children’s services cover a huge range of help and support.
How can you help us? This key question is more and more important as we face up to losing tens of millions of pounds of government funding.
Somerset has a great track record for attracting investment to boost jobs and our local economy.
We will continue to work within our income – no council is allowed to run up a budget deficit –unlike Government or other parts of the public sector.
