Anyone who feels they need help is entitled to some level of support.

For some people this will be advice and information and for others it will be the provision of services or money to buy services.

You can complete a self-assessment if you or the person you are caring for is 18 and over and has -  

  • health problems 
  • a physical disability 
  • sensory impairments 
  • a learning disability 
  • mental health problems that mean you need support to be safe or live independently 

All applicants must live within or be moving to within the Hull boundary. 

In order to be eligible, a need must -

  • arise from a physical or mental impairment or illness
  • means you are unable to meet one or more of the outcomes listed below
  • have a significant impact on your wellbeing

Your needs are only eligible if they meet all three of these conditions. It is important to remember that the impact a physical, mental impairment or illness has on an individual will be different from person to person. Therefore, we need to understand how your impairment or illness affects you on an ongoing basis.

The specified outcomes we measure against are -

  • managing and maintaining nutrition
  • maintaining personal hygiene
  • managing toilet needs
  • being appropriately clothed
  • being able to stay safe in your home
  • maintaining a habitable home environment 
  • developing and maintaining family or other personal relationships
  • accessing and engaging in work, training, education or volunteering
  • making use of necessary facilities or services in the local community including public transport, and recreational facilities or services
  • carrying out any caring responsibilities you have for a child

You will be regarded as unable to achieve these outcomes if -

  • you can't do it without help
  • you can do it but it causes significant pain, distress or anxiety
  • you can do it but only at significant risk to your health and safety or that of others
  • you can do it but it takes significantly longer than would normally be expected

How it works

There's a process to follow to decide what care and support you may need and how it can be provided. The process involves the following steps -

Step 1 - An assessment of your social care needs 
Step 2 - An estimate of how much your Care and support plan may cost 
Step 3 - A financial assessment 
Step 4 - Your agreed personal budget (if you qualify)
