Adult Care

This page provides information about our adult care service.

We provide adult social care services for the most vulnerable people in our community, including:

  • older people
  • people with a learning disability
  • people with a physical disability
  • people with sensory loss
  • people with a substance misuse or alcohol misuse
  • people with mental health needs
  • unpaid carers.

We also operate in-house care and support services. A key focus for adult care is to ensure that adults are safeguarded from abuse and neglect.
