Talking it through

There are people in your local area who can help you with building your circle of support.

They are not Care Act assessors or social workers. They are employed by the council to support people with illnesses and disabilities to find practical solutions to make daily life a little bit easier.

They will listen carefully to fully understand the areas that you are struggling with and put you in touch with people, places and things that could help. You will decide how much of their help and advice you want to take forwards, if any.

You don't need a referral from the council, and there are no long waiting lists.
