Doncaster Adult Social Services and Wellbeing Team
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.
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.
Extra care housing provides 24-hour support for older people who want to remain independent or can no longer live in their own homes.
SMILE (Supportive Multi-Ability Inter-Generational Life Experiences) provides day activities and projects for older people, adults with learning disabilities, autism and individuals who require specialist support.
The importance of good quality, effective learning and development cannot be underestimated by providers wanting to deliver excellent outcomes for service users.
Shaping and developing the care and support market to meet our needs.
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.
