Am I eligible for social care support?

To be assessed as eligible for support, you need to show that:

1. Your needs arise from (or are related to) a physical or mental impairment or illness, and

2. The issues you face have a significant impact on your wellbeing, and

3. You are unable to achieve two or more of the following activities:

    • Eating and drinking
    • Maintaining personal hygiene
    • Managing toilet needs
    • Being appropriately clothed
    • Being able to make use of your home safely
    • Maintaining a habitable home environment
    • Developing or maintaining family or other personal relationships
    • Accessing and engaging in work, training, education or volunteering
    • Making use of necessary facilities or services in the local community including public transport and recreational facilities or services
    • Carrying out caring responsibilities the adult has for a child

These national criteria are standard across the country, making the system fairer. It also means that it is easier to move between local authority areas, if you need to.
