This page is about caring for a child in Somerset

The Council works with parents, carers and young people to offer advice and support before a situation reaches crisis point. They also work in partnership and may refer to other services and community groups, including education, health, housing, benefits agencies and the police.

To make an enquiry, phone Somerset Direct on 0300 123 2224, where an advisor will be able to discuss what type of service you may need.

You can find more information about Children’s Social Care on the Somerset County Council website.
