What is the Big Tent?

Big Tent is a VCSE (Voluntary Community Social Enterprise) alliance of emotional wellbeing and mental health providers for children and young people aged 8-18 within Somerset, operating under a quality and safety assurance process. The Big Tent, funded by CCG and facilitated by Young Somerset, is designed to broker the best local solution for a child / young person’s needs, making it easy for them, their parents / carers, and professionals to access support. The Big Tent operates within localities, building awareness and partnerships with statutory organisations (including GP surgeries, CAMHS, schools) so that they can signpost effectively.
