The Connect Service- can help you by finding info about local services, activities & opportunities. 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.
Please contact us on 0300 500 80 80, an advisor can help you with your options and may complete a referral for a care and support assessment.
