Services for people with a physical disability
Our social work service provides a number of services for people with physical disabilities. We work in partnership with other agencies and the health service to give a range of care. Our services are aimed at giving people with disabilities the opportunity to achieve maximum independence at home and in the community.
An assessment of your needs is done to find out which services you require. This is called a community care assessment and may be carried out by social work, care manager or health staff.
Services available include:
- support and advice service
- occupational therapy
- short breaks and respite care
- day centres
- care and support at home
- support with training and employment
- Blue Badge scheme
