Am I eligible for support? Request an assessment

If you are looking for help from us with your care and support needs, you can request an assessment. This is a conversation with you to work out if you are eligible to receive practical and financial assistance from us.

The assessment is free, and anybody who wants an assessment is entitled to one, under the Care Act 2014.
