Who qualifies for services?
If you contact us, and need our support, we will offer you a social care assessment to assess your needs. The purpose of an assessment is to understand your circumstances and see which of your needs are most important and what risk you are at if you do not get any help with these.

However, our resources are limited and we are only able to provide a service to people with the highest levels of needs.

Critical need
West Berkshire Council can only give you support if you have a ‘critical’ need. If you do not have a critical need we will provide information, advice and signpost you to other services and support groups that may be able to help. Things that show us you have a critical risk/need
