Access Keys:

Getting Support from Adult Social Care

Skip main menu

Adult Social Care use national guidelines called eligibility criteria to decide if you, or your relative, are eligible for long term support from us.  These criteria are based on the risk to a person's independence.

Adult Social Care staff undertake an assessment of need to decide if you, or your relative, are eligible for support.

Some short term and preventative services, such as reablement, are not subject to such eligibility criteria.

For further information, please use the links on the left hand menu, or contact your local Adult Social Care office.
