Preparing for adulthood: how will support for parents / carers change?
When a child reaches adulthood, the way their parents or families are supported will change. To understand your level of needs and what support should be provided, the council will invite you to complete a Carer's Assessment. This is a way that you can let the adult social care team know about your caring responsibilities and how they affect you.
After completion of the Carer's Assessment, the council will let you know what support they are able to offer. It might include training, help with transport, or short breaks away from caring. This will be detailed in a personalised Support Plan.
