Request for services
Cheshire West and Chester Council is committed to supporting individuals in need of social care, to live independently in their local communities for as long as possible.
There is a national eligibility threshold for social care which consists of three criteria, all of which must be met for your needs to be eligible. The eligibility threshold is based on:
- Whether your needs are due to a physical or mental impairment or illness.
- To what extent your needs affect your ability to achieve two or more outcome, such as maintaining personal hygiene and managing toilet need: and
- Whether, and to what extent, this impacts on your wellbeing.
The Council has a duty to assess anyone who appears to have needs that mean they require care and support.
If you need an assessment, you or a family member, doctor or district nurse can make a referral for an assessment by contacting the Cheshire West Community Access Team:
