Adult social care is about supporting people achieve the life they want to live.

We help people identify their strengths and achieve their potential. We focus on the outcomes they want and support them to live independently and well within their communities.

We provide support for people who: 

  • are frail 
  • have disabilities 
  • are neurodivergent 
  • have mental health conditions 
  • care for other adults
  • are vulnerable and at risk of abuse
