Request help for an adult

We help adults with social care needs find care and support so they can live as independently as possible in their own homes. This includes:

  • older people
  • people with physical disabilities or learning disabilities
  • mental health service users

We can arrange for someone to work with you if you need help to understand what your needs are and how to access services you need.

Social care needs are:

  • making sure you eat well
  • looking after yourself
  • help with day to day living
  • emotional wellbeing and mental health
  • staying safe
  • supporting your family and friends to care for you

We also provide help for carers who look after relatives or friends who can’t manage on their own.

For help and advice about social care or support for an adult, you can request help online. We’ll ask you some questions to find out what you need and how you can be helped.
