What is Connexions?

Connexions Somerset is an advice and guidance service for 13-19 year olds. It has been set up as a place where young people can go to get information, advice, guidance and support.

Connexions links all organisations that work with young people including schools, colleges, training providers, youth groups, social services, youth offending teams etc.

This means young people can get information and support on a wide range of subjects. These include:

bullet point Relationships
bullet point Work, Careers, Education & Training
bullet point Money
bullet point Housing
bullet point Lifestyle
bullet point Voluntary Activities
bullet point Health
bullet point Leisure Opportunities
bullet point The Law
bullet point Drug/Alcohol Problems
bullet point Employment

Consider Connexions somewhere to go when you need to speak to someone “in the know”.

The Connexions Service is organised across Somerset in 4 area teams, each with Connexions Centres for young people to visit.

Central Information and Marketing, Quality and MIS, IT, HR and Finance teams support the area teams and a Senior Management Team manages Connexions Somerset.
