In this section we have collated a list of Social Services in the North East. There are a range of Social Services available within each Local Authority. We have listed the areas on the left hand navigation bar. In particular, you may be interested in finding out about Direct Payments, home adaptations, help when you leave hospital, caring for someone including benefits related to this, and health and well being.
Each borough has a Carer's Strategy highlighting what services are available for carers including training for their caring role, respite breaks and emergency schemes. All statutory services will make an assessment against criteria and currently and individual must meet 'substantial' or 'critical' in order to qualify for the service.
