If needed, Connect staff can work with you around money issues, housing problems, health management & other things. This short-term support will be tailored to your needs & will focus on achieving what you want in a way that suits you.
If after exploring these options you feel you may need more support, then you might need to have a Care & Support Assessment. This will allow you to explain the things you are finding hard to achieve & we will discuss with you how we might be able to help you.
The aim of the assessment will always be to help you regain or maintain a level of independence. We will carry out the assessment in the most proportionate way depending on your needs, this could be over the telephone or at one of our clinics.
