Social care and assessments

If you, or a loved one, think you need help to remain independent, you can approach us for a conversation about the support you need. We will talk to you about your health condition, frailty or disability and how it affects your daily life. Where possible we will put you in touch with community support there and then. If you need more help after that we will assess your long term needs.

Only those with eligible social care needs may be entitled to receive funded support from the council. You can find out if are likely to get social care support from us and how much you may you have to pay by using Adult Social Care Online.
