This website has been developed by Wiltshire Council and Healthwatch Wiltshire to provide people with information about care and support services in Wiltshire and to provide information about what services are available within your community.
The design of Your Care Your Support Wiltshire is based on the questions people often ask about Health and Social Care, separated into different ‘tiles’ on the page. Each tile has a picture and brief description of the subject it stands for. Click on a tile to open a new page or menu. We have arranged our information around four usual questions people ask us about Social Care: ‘What is social care?’; ‘How do I get it?’; ‘How do I pay for it?’; ‘What do I do if someone is being abused? Quick links will always be visible near the top of your screen. They quickly return you to the website home page or Wiltshire Council’s homepage; Directories in the site (The A to Z or Service Directory); Guides (bespoke information and lists); Ways to Contact Us (the contact us page, feedback page, help and referrals).
The information pages are about the subjects you will be considering when you are finding out about adult social care. The service directory is a database of services in the county which support people in Wiltshire
Guides enable you to build an information sheet tailored to your needs that you can print, save, or send by email. You can find the guides section by clicking on the Guides quick link. We want to develop this aspect of the website. If you would like guides about a specific topic, please do let us know through the Site feedback option.
My Pad lets you save links to information you have found and want to go back to. You can also add your own notes and update them whenever you wish. If you have not created an account, then the links and notes stay in MyPad until you close your care your support Wiltshire. If you are logged in to your account, MyPad will save your links and notes until you delete them. You can create bespoke lists for individual customers, and print or email the list as a social prescription for your patient.
If you want to save information to look at again in the future you will need to create an account. This takes just a few minutes and all you need is a few personal details and a valid email address. Having an account will also help you use forms to refer yourself or others for services.
You can search in the box at the top right-hand side of the screen in the desktop, or as part of the ‘hamburger icon’ on mobile. Type a few words and press ‘return’ on your keyboard. You can also click the magnifying glass symbol to search the site. Search results give you service directory and information pages. Search results are displayed in a list, but you can choose to display them on a map. You can filter search results by category or information source. In list view, click the title in the description of the result. In map view, scroll in to look at the pushpins in the map.
We have given you the option to use digital services where appropriate. You can refer yourself or someone else for advice, which might lead to a Care Act Assessment. You can also complete a S42 form if you have safeguarding concerns. To use both these forms you have to register, and log in to www.yourcareyoursupportwiltshire.org.uk so the details are traceable and clear.
