In this part of the website you can find lots of information about help you can get to live as independently as possible. Follow the menu to the left of this page to find the topic you need. You can watch this video to help you get started:
You can research and source equipment, find out about support and groups that can help you and find health information. We have also included useful contact details.
There can be difficult decisions to make when it comes to arranging care and support. Sometimes you may need someone to help you and speak up for you. There is information about how to do that.
There is information about using community or voluntary transport, information about different housing options if you are thinking about moving, and about how you can adapt your home or choose the type of care home that might suit you best.
If you are a carer, someone who helps another person, usually a relative or friend, in their day-to-day life, there is information about support groups, and breaks for carers and young carers.
We tell you about what Adult Social Care does, how to get in touch with them to talk things through if you need to, and information about help with paying for your care and getting independent advice.
We have information and advice about equipment, groups and support services for people with a sensory loss. Some of our information is available in British Sign Language videos.
