Get help from adult social care

At some point in your life, you may need help from adult social care. This could be due to your own needs or those of a friend or family member. Any adult over 18 can request support.

You might have a disability or illness that limits the things you can do, or need help with daily tasks such as washing and dressing, preparing meals, going out to do your shopping or keeping in touch with friends and family.

You can find support by completing an online self-assessment. This can be completed by you or somebody else on your behalf.

Please complete this assessment with as much information as possible.

If you need help from our Occupational Therapy team, please use our referral form.

The self-assessment will ask you questions about your life and the things you find difficult, and provide you with a list of services and organisations that can help.

If we find it’s likely you need help, you can then choose to complete a full assessment which is a more detailed look at your life, including what is going well and what you might need further support with.
