Getting help with disabilities

If you have a disability or care for someone with a disability we will be able to provide care and support where possible. There is a variety of support available from individuals and local organisations.

Support for adults

If you think you need care and support from us, you can find out more by looking at the adult social care section.

On our adult social care pages, you can also find some useful information and advice about:

Support for carers 

If you care for someone, you have the right to ask for a carers assessment.

Support for children and young people

If you are looking for support for children and young people with disabilities, the children’s disability services page has all the information you need to know.

Sensory support

If you or someone you know has a hearing/sight impairment, you can find further information on help and support with sensory loss within the sensory pages.

Search for services and support in your local area

If you think you need some further support, start by looking at Staffordshire Connects.

Here you will find local organisations that can provide care services, along with information and advice about support for people with a learning disability, autism, vision loss, hearing loss.

Living with a learning disability should not stop someone from leading an active and enjoyable life, and from being supported to get out and about in their local community.
