We are here to support people achieve a better and independent life within their own communities. To help them identify their strengths, realise their potential and live well.

We provide support for people who:

  • are frail
  • have disabilities
  • are neurodivergent
  • have mental health conditions
  • care for other adults


  • provide information and advice about care and support
  • offer short-term help to promote independence
  • give longer-term support for people who have more complex needs

Concern about an adult

We also act on concerns that an adult is being abused or neglected. If you know someone is being abused, or think they may be, you can report it to us.
