Assessment and eligibility for care and support

If you’re aged 18 or over and live in the county of Leicestershire, you can request a care and support assessment to find out if you have eligible care and support needs.

The Household Support Fund has been provided by the Government to local authorities to support families with children and individuals most in need this winter. It replaces the Covid Local Grant Scheme (CLGS).

Get a care and support assessment to see if you have eligible care and support needs.

We use national eligibility criteria from the Care Act 2014 to identify whether you have eligible care and support needs when we have completed your care and support assessment.

Your personal budget is the total amount of money allocated to you to meet your care and support needs, as agreed in your support plan, following your care and support assessment.

You can have someone who will support and involve you as much as possible in discussions and decisions about your care and support. They are known as an advocate.
