West Somerset

Welcome to the West Somerset page.

In West Somerset we are ambitious for every one of the people we support whether in supported living, day services or in one of our residential care homes.

Residential Care

Discovery runs care homes across the county, regulated by the Care Quality Commission.

We have developed a personalised approach, to enable people to have choice and control in their lives, to choose what they do, who supports them and how they spend their time.


Located in Taunton Newholme is a purpose built accessible bungalow accommodating up to 8 individuals.


The Saplings is a purpose built bungalow, set in a quiet residential area on the outskirts of Taunton.

Day services

Bindon Road

Bindon Road is equipped to offer a range of activities and skill development, boasting its own computer suite, kitchen and large areas for project work such as renovating furniture and making crafts which are sold in the on-site craft shop ran by the people we support.

At Bindon road we promote choice and inclusion by listening to the people we support, we shape a service that is as individual as they are. We believe that each person we support should have opportunities to develop skills and enjoy the activities they wish to do as part of their local community, enabling individuals to live an active and inclusive life.


Laurels is a dynamic service offering personalised support for people with a range of needs. We empower individuals to have choice and control, supporting people to achieve their full potential in a relaxing environment.

We offer academic, social skills, cooking, arts and community based activities. Support at Laurels is based around the needs and aspirations of the individuals we support and aims to give everyone equal opportunities to experience meaningful activities and learn new skills.

Our centre is complete with overhead and manual hoists which allow access to all areas of the building. We have a Snoezelen and a Jacuzzi bath which aid therapeutic needs.

Seahorse Centre

The Seahorse Centre is situated in the coastal town of Minehead, within walking distance of the seafront, shops and West Somerset Railway. The centre is fully equipped including its own kitchen and gardens, over-head hoists, accessible bathrooms and a multi-sensory room.

  • cooking

  • walking and trips out
  • games and sports
