Our Community Care Service offers advice and information about community care issues, including finding out what help you can get from your local social services department; how to access the help; and how to make a complaint to your social services department if you are not happy with their decisions or the services they offer.
Some of the help that people affected by autism may be entitled to includes Direct Payments, day centres, respite services, or help with housing options. More information about community care for children and adults can be found here.
To use the Community Care Service you can:
