Care and support for you and others

Information on what we provide, how we support you, and how to access support for those that need it, including carers through assessment.

'Care and support is the term used to describe the help some adults need to live as well as possible with any illness or disability they may have.

It can include help with things like getting out of bed, washing, dressing, getting to work, cooking meals, eating, seeing friends, caring for families and being part of the community.

It might also include emotional support at a time of difficulty and stress, helping people who are caring for an adult family member or friend or even giving others a lift to a social event.

Care and support includes the help given by family and friends, as well as any provided by the council or other organisations.
