About us

Discovery works across Somerset supporting over 900 people with learning disabilities and/or autism and their families. We are a social enterprise, established in April 2017 commissioned by Somerset County Council to provide a range of care, support and accommodation, supporting people to be part of their communities and to have choice and control over their lives. We put people at the centre of everything we do and value everyone’s unique contribution – those we support, their families and our colleagues.
