How to access or apply for it:

Users must meet the council’s ‘eligibility criteria’ for receiving a service.

Placements at the centre can only be offered following an assessment by a social worker. The assessment is to clarify the individual’s needs and ensure the authority’s eligibility criteria are met. If the assessment confirms the need for a day care placement, a referral/care plan is passed to the day centre.

Anybody can refer someone who they think is in need of care and support to adult services for an assessment. This includes family members, carers, doctors and potential services users themselves.

To make a new referral call the Social Care Contact Team on 020 7364 5005
