What is a needs assessment?
An assessment means we meet you and talk about your situation. We'll ask you some questions about your wellbeing and how you're managing in your daily life so that we can think about what help and support you might need.
Anyone over the age of 18 who asks for a social care needs assessment has the right to have one.
Go to our needs assessment web page to find out how to request an assessment.
A carer is somebody who cares for a friend or family member, who is over 18 years of age.
The person they care for usually needs support due to their age, illness, disability, substance misuse or mental health problem and couldn't manage without this help. If this applies to you, you can ask for a carers assessment.
