Support from adult social care

Adult Social Care is about providing personal and practical support to help you live your life. It's about supporting you to maintain your independence and dignity.

There is a shared commitment by the Government, local councils and providers of services to make sure you have the choice, flexibility and control to live your life as you wish.

In this section you will find information on how to get an assessment and what happens next as well as information on other services available from us.

Face-to-face chat with social care

If you would like information and advice on a variety of local support solutions without having to go through a full assessment of your social care needs, you can arrange to see a social care worker for an informal face-to-face chat. We have appointments and drop in sessions available in a number of community venues throughout the week. For more information please visit our Talking Points page.
