Social care support is about providing practical and emotional help to people who need it. This can include services like help with finding a place to live, managing money, and participating in social activities. It's often given to those who are vulnerable or have complex needs, like the elderly, people with disabilities, or those with mental health issues.
If you need assistance with day-to-day tasks that most people can manage on their own, the Nottingham City Adult Social Care Team can provide you with the help you need. This support will enable you to maintain your independence and dignity.
