In this section you will find links to several websites that we use ourselves and that we often signpost parents and carers too. There is a mixture of further information and also resources that you can use at home with your children to support their mood and emotional literacy (they may also be of some benefit to the adults as well).
Young Somerset’s ‘Directory of services’ including Apps that young people can access independently
Our lives are becoming evermore connected to the online world and this can have positive and negative effects on our wellbeing. For more information about this and ways that you can help your children use the internet safely and responsibly, visit our online safety page.
