Carer's needs assessment

A Carers Assessment looks at the impact that providing care for someone else has on your own life.

It is an opportunity to think about what might support you while you are a carer, in conversation with an Adult Social Care Worker.

The council uses the assessment to enable you to find support and also to decide what help to provide to support you.  

You have a right to an assessment if you already care for or intend to care for someone. If you have already had an assessment and your situation has changed, you can be re-assessed.
