Frequently Asked Questions

Here is the answer to the question:
How do I know if I am eligible for community care?

Community Care services in Gloucestershire are provided by Gloucestershire County Council's Social Services Department.



There are three stages that Social Services go through to assess if you are eligible for Community Care. These are:



1. On the basis of what you tell them, they decide if you should have an assessment to work out your care needs.

2. With your help they carry out the assessment.

3. They then have to decide if your case is a priority and whether funding is available to help you.
