Adult Care Brokerage Service

What does it do?

What do brokers do?
  • Find service providers who can meet your outcomes and choices.
  • Give information about service providers (for example, costs of the service, registration details, star ratings, whether the provider can meet your specific preferences).
  • Arrange the service for you if you have a personal budget and have had your support plan agreed by your care manager.
  • Give information about different types of support available from the statutory, independent and voluntary sector.
  • Give information about a range of different services - day services, homecare, residential and nursing care homes, social activities, luncheon clubs and more. 

Who it is for?
