Community Support Service


Engage provides new Integrated Community Support Service in collaboration with Somerset-You-Can-Do

Posted by: admin

Engage has teamed up with Somerset You can Do to bring a range of new services to West Somerset - the Integrated Community Support Service (ICSS).

ICSS is designed to assist adults with additional needs to help themselves and keep their independence in a variety of ways, including supporting vulnerable people to take part in local community activities.

The service can include: putting people in touch with organisations and community groups to provide tailored, practical assistance; providing information about obtaining help at home; and helping people find out what equipment is available for hire or purchase that can help them live independently.

Information can be made available about local activities such as exercise classes, craft groups and specific support groups.

Bryan Mitchell, Somerset You can Do Services Manager said:

“We are delighted to be working in partnership with Engage to bring this new service to the people of West Somerset. Somerset You can Do works across the county, which means that the local knowledge of organisations such as Engage is vital to ensure the information we provide is relevant to people in a particular district.

“Engage has helped us in the past by finding volunteers. Working together in this way can only benefit our communities.”

Katrina Midgley, Engage Manager said:

“This is a brilliant opportunity to expand our work, which normally focuses on supporting groups, to include individuals within our communities.

“We clearly need to make sure that we have up-to-date information about the groups and services that are available in West Somerset, and we are in the process of compiling a database of these.

“I would therefore ask people to let us have contact details for any groups or activities that they are aware of.”

Anyone seeking information about what is available in West Somerset can contact Engage on 01643 707123 or vcssupport@engagews.org.uk .
