Who should I contact to find out information about accessing care for myself as a person confined to a wheelchair and receiving benefits?

Hi Sheila, who should I contact to find out information about accessing care for myself as a person confined to a wheelchair and receiving benefits?

 

Dear C,

 

Thank you for your question.

 

There is not a great deal of information in your email but I am going to assume that you are already in contact with your local social services department.

 

If you are not you should contact them.

 

They have the responsibility to work with and support people who are in need of care and who will need assistance with finding that care and with the payment for that care.

 

The social services department will assess you to identify the needs that you have and then work with you to decide how those needs can be met.

 

You can find out about how to access services on the Northamptonshire County Council website.

 

There is also useful information on the SCOPE website about eligibility to access social care:

 

I hope that this is helpful.

 

With best wishes.

 

Sheila
