Access the social care portal
The Citizen Portal is a way for you to access certain services the authority offers. When you provide your information within the Citizen Portal this information is saved directly into Staffordshire County Councils systems and will be used to contact you and process actions you have requested such as a self-assessment. The information provided is subject to checks, it does not make you automatically eligible to support.
When you complete a self-assessment, an algorithm may be used to make a suggestion of your eligibility for services and the level of support you may need. An algorithm is an automated calculation which uses the information you provide without the need for human intervention. If you are not comfortable with algorithms being used as part of your assessment please contact us using the contact details below. Qualified and trained members of staff will be involved in the process at every step, they will review and be able to make changes to the results of the algorithm if required.
If you do not complete your registration or verification the creation of your account will not be completed and therefore any registration details you have submitted will be deactivated after 28 days. If you do not submit your assessment you will receive a notification (for example by email) stating that due to the application not having been submitted it will be deleted within 28 days.
