Adult & Social Care

You can arrange a discussion between yourself and a social work professional to understand what help and support you might need coping with life on a day to day basis and living independently in your own home.

The conversation will also help you to understand what you can do for yourself and inform you of what support is available to you in your local community and through other networks and services.

If you have care needs you can request a conversation for yourself, or someone you care for.
