If you’re a carer, a carer’s assessment is a chance to discuss your needs with your local council.
The assessment is free and your local council will use it to decide what support to give you.
Don’t be put off by the word ‘assessment’. It is not a test about how good you are at caring. It is to work out what can be done to make life easier for you. No one will judge you.
The assessment is usually a face-to-face meeting with someone from your local council, or from another organisation on behalf of your local council.
