About this service

We have a small number of activity centres which provide a range of daytime activities for adults with particular needs. These services are only available following an assessment of need. We can also provide information about other organisations that provide leisure and social activities, through day centres, lunch clubs and in other ways.

An assessment of need is a discussion to find out how best to support you with the problems you are facing. We will look at your needs and decide whether you are eligible for services including attending one of our activity centres. There are more details about eligibility for our services below. Our services cover:

  • Care management
  • Occupational therapy
  • Hospital social work
  • Hearing and vision services (e.g. mobility training)
  • Community social work
  • Direct payments
  • Domiciliary care
  • Intermediate care
  • Residential/nursing home placements
  • Luncheon clubs
  • Meals on wheels
  • Day services
  • Supported employment
  • Supported living

 

Eligibility

As we receive more requests for help than there is available funding to cover, we have to decide: who should get a service, in what order of priority, how services can best be provided, whether we will provide the service ourselves or suggest another more appropriate organisation. This is to ensure that people in greatest need will get the most help. For more information please see our Eligibility Criteria.
