Care and support for people with learning disabilities

We want all Somerset residence to be able to have equal access to mainstream support in their local community, and tailored assistance to support where they need it. Eligibility for services is determined though a care and support assessment.

The Council uses national rules to work out if you are eligible for help with paying for any care and support you need.

There are two sets of rules; care eligibility and financial eligibility.
