What does the self-assessment do?
By answering some quick questions about your current situation we can direct you towards information, advice and services that could help you to live independently and improve your wellbeing.
The self assessment will also recommend if you would benefit from speaking to a member of the Staffordshire Cares team to discuss your needs in more detail.
If this is recommended, the form can be used to send your information on to us. An advisor will then be in touch.
The self assessment is available to use 24 hours a day and is quick and easy to use. The form is for people aged 18 or over.
