Adult Social Work

Find out more about our services

What do we do?

We provide a variety of services which aim to:

  • ensure the safety and protection of vulnerable adults, young people and children
  • support individuals and families to maintain independence and to exercise choice about the way they live their lives

Our services:


When you contact us, a specialist call handler will ask you some questions about your needs and the support that you require (or the person who you are contacting us on behalf of). This is a conversation between the call handler, yourself and your carer, if you have one.  These questions let us know what matters to you and helps us identify the support and advice you need to help you live as independent a life as you can. Our conversation will establish whether we pass your request to one of our Health and Social Care Partnership services or signpost you to another organisation or service. This may include referral to our community Talking Points partnership.

Not everyone will qualify for a service. Find out more about our social care criteria and our Assessment Framework
