Information sheets

There are publications and information sheets about the Council's services in the Adult Social Care section of the Somerset County Council website. They are in pdf format so that you can save them or print them. 

We have published them here as web pages so that you can print them easily. If you need them in different languages you can use the 'Select language' menu at the top left of the page. Please remember, this will give you an automated translation, and not one created by us. You can also change the text size and the contrast.
