Extra care housing provides 24-hour support for older people who want to remain independent or can no longer live in their own homes.
If you, or someone on your behalf, apply for care and support from the council, we will offer you a financial assessment to check whether you are eligible for any financial help from the council towards the costs of your social care and support.
Council Tax assumes two adults (aged 18 and over) are living in your property but in some circumstances you may be entitled to a reduction.

How can we develop our workforce?
In Doncaster there are at least 33,364 unpaid carers who play a vital role in the provision of health and social care to friends and relatives. We recognise that often unpaid carers are providing this care alongside their traditional paid employment.
