Who we are
Pathways to Independence (P2i) work in partnership with Somerset County Council, Mendip District Council, Taunton Deane Borough Council, South Somerset District Council, West Somerset Council, and Sedgemoor District Council in order to provide a range of services to enable young people to live independently from our services but to be here while they need a hand.

YMCA Somerset Coast Group manages the P2i website and is a charity offering a range of services and support to the local communities we serve. Young people are at our core. We believe in young people and we believe in creating transformational communities in which they can truly belong, contribute and thrive.   YMCA Somerset Coast Group affiliates to YMCA England and is part of the worldwide movement of YMCAs.
