SOCIAL SERVICES ADVICE
How to get the most from social sevices
Did you know you might be entitled to a certain amount of free care to use at local short breaks charities? This could be used during weekends and school holidays.
You might also be entitled to some free special needs childcare.
Other types of support social services should have available (for those who fit criteria) include: day-time care, overnight care, educational and leisure activities and emergency support.
I can apply for a child and carer’s assessment on your behalf which could secure support such as carers in your home or a direct payment allowing you to employ your own carers.
