Social care and health
Following receipt of this referral Surrey County Council will gather further information to be able to assess whether the person referred has an eligible need. Our policy in Surrey is to provide support for people who are assessed as having needs within Critical and Substantial risk bands. An explanation of these can be found on the Surrey County Council website under "How to access adult social care services".
Once it has been assessed that someone has an eligible need we will discuss with them the most appropriate way of meeting that need and whether or not it is necessary for the county council to provide services to meet that need.
If their needs fall outside what we can offer, we will assist them with advice, information and other support so they can find another agency or service that can help. Many people find that the assessment process is helpful in finding solutions because it provides an opportunity for individuals and/or their carers to reflect on their situation with an experienced independent person.
This form is to refer individuals and carers for Adult Social Care Assessment. The term Carer is used for someone who looks after a family member, a partner or a friend and the care they provide is unpaid. Carers under the age of 18 years of age are known as "young carers".
