A care and support needs assessment works out what help and support you need, and how to get this.
The assessment is free, and you can get one regardless of your income or any savings you have.
An assessment will give you the chance to tell us about any difficulties you have in looking after yourself, how these difficulties affect your wellbeing and the things you'd like to achieve.
If a friend or family member helps to look after you as an unpaid carer, they can get a carer's assessment - this looks at whether they need any support to carry on caring for you.
How to get a care and support assessment
We will carry out an assessment for any adult who appears to have a need for care and support.

If you are a professional, you can refer a person you're working with through our professional referrals portal.
