What we are doing NOW and will keep on doing:

  • continue working with the health and voluntary sectors to address the effects of dementia, depression and other mental health issues affecting our residents
  • maintain a positive and pro-active role in care and support for the elderly, vulnerable and those with disabilities. Work with Age UK and other groups to expand a “befriending service”
  • positively promote activities that engage young people in sport and exercise
  • continue to promote healthy lifestyle initiatives for all ages, such as the health walks, and local community indoor sports maintain the drive to combat fuel poverty by promoting  new initiatives
  • maintain public access to swimming pools across the district
  • maintain and enhance the provision of cultural and leisure events through our nationally acclaimed Octagon Theatre and other local arts facilities
  • lead on the highly important Armed Forces Covenant to support military personnel, their families and veterans across South Somerset
