How can I arrange a social care assessment?

The Coronavirus Act 2020 may change how local authorities assess your needs and provide support over this emergency period. Please read RNIB’s social care web page for more information. For up to date advice tailored to your circumstances, please call the RNIB Helpline on 0303 123 9999, from 8am to 8pm weekdays or 9am to 1pm Saturdays.

Your first step to getting help from social services should be to contact them and explain that you have sight loss and would like an assessment of your needs.

You can find your local council to arrange an assessment on the Gov.uk website.
