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.
