Advice and information

An essential part of Care Act places a duty on councils to establish and maintain a service providing information and advice to local people on care and support.

This advice and information is intended to help you to find out what you need to know in order to prevent, reduce and delay your need for care and support. It is also intended to help you, when you do have care and support needs, to make choices about how to meet those needs.

We are working hard to provide the local public with up to date information and advice on local services available, throughout the district. If you feel that you would benefit from some information and advice, go to our Connect to Support site

If you are aware of a local service or piece of advice that you think should be listed on Connect to Support, but cannot find on Connect to Support - please let us know by emailing us at

If need more infromation please contact us using the information to the right of this page.
