Get more from life

Discovery supports autistic people and people with learning disabilities in Somerset and Cornwall to get more from life.

The people we support are at the heart of everything we do, and the centre of every decision we make. We support people to discover what a great life means for them, and achieve excellent individual outcomes.

Discovery was formed in 2017 in a ground-breaking partnership between Dimensions and Somerset County Council. As a social enterprise, we work in partnership with the people we support, families, carers, colleagues and a wide range of organisations countywide. More than half of any surplus we make is reinvested into improving services for autistic people and people with learning disabilities in Somerset through the Discovery Community Fund.

Here you can find out about our supported living and registered care, community outreach, short breaks and supported employment services in Somerset.

If you would like to speak to someone about your support or you are interested in ways in which we can support you in the future, please contact us.
