Accessing and paying for care

Find out how to access and pay for your social care.

Some people qualify for free care from social services. Some people have to pay a weekly charge towards the cost of their care.

There are different types of care. Some people live at home and need help with personal or household tasks. Some people live in a care home.

We will carry out an assessment to work out how much you can afford to pay towards the cost of your care.
