What is this service?

If you are finding it difficult to look after yourself and manage everyday tasks then please contact Adult Social Care to discuss your care and support needs. The discussion will identify:

- If you need care and support
- The level of care and support you need
- How these could be met
- Your family and social support networks

They may then arrange for you to have a care needs assessment. This means that a social worker or occupational therapist will visit you to discuss your care and support needs further and advise you on the next steps.

If you’re assessed as needing social care and support, they will agree a care and support plan with you. The plan includes:

- How your support will be provided
- How much it costs
- Who will be paying for it

Lines are open Monday to Thursday, 8.45am-5pm and Friday, 8-45am-4.30pm

For out of hours queries contact the Emergency Duty Service. Telephone: 0345 606 1212
