How to request an assessment
If you think you meet the eligibility criteria for our services you should request an assessment and a financial assessment.
It is important to understand that most people will have to pay something towards the cost of their care. You may be eligible to receive financial support from the council if you have savings or investments (available capital) of less than £23,250.
Once completed, if we agree that you are eligible for help, you will be provided with an estimated care budget. This will tell you how much we will contribute to your care and how much your own contribution will need to be.
Care and Support Plans
We will then develop a support plan with you. This helps you to think about how you want to use your estimated care budget to get the care and support you need.
A personal budget will be set once your support plan has been agreed.
