Self-assess your needs

You can self-assess your care and support needs to find help to live independently and request more support if you need it.

If you or someone you know might need support, you can use our self-assessment to look for help.

How it works

The self-assessment form provides care and support information based on your:

  • living situation
  • physical, mental and emotional needs
  • basic finances

The self-assessment only takes about 10 minutes to complete.

Why use the self-assessment?

  • Find out what care or support needs you have 
  • Suggestions for equipment, adaptations and services that might help you stay in your own home
  • Local groups, clubs and events in your community that can help you remain active, healthy and independent
  • Check if you're eligible for social care funding and support from the council
  • Learn how to request social care support if you need it
