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 getting care and support page.
On our adult social care pages, you can also find some useful infomation and advice about:
- personal budgets and direct payments
- how to keep healthy and well
- equipment and technology that can help you with daily life
- how to apply for a blue badge
- ways to maintain your independance whilst living at home
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.
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
