Adult social care assessment

What does it do?

Assessment for people with social care needs

If you think you need social care support you have the right to ask us to assess your needs. An assessment helps us identify your social care needs, what’s important to you and what you want to be able to achieve.

This does not mean we will provide funding at the end of the assessment as you may not be eligible for this.


Self-assessment is designed to help you think about what is working well for you and what needs to change.

You can complete a form to help you:

plan and buy your own support; or

think about your situation before contacting us for a formal assessment.
