Adult social care referral details

The Adult Social Care service at Surrey County Council focuses its support on people with social care needs and carers to help them remain safe, well and independent in their communities. The service ensures people in most need of support are prioritised, particularly:

  • people with long-term and complex needs that affect their daily life;
  • people recovering from an accident or illness who need help to manage daily living tasks, or build confidence over a short period of time;
  • people recovering from a mental illness; and
  • carers of all ages.

Residents with care and support needs can be referred and supported via the following means:
