Connect to Support Surrey
Connect to Support Surrey is an online directory of local support and services to help you, or your loved ones, stay independent. Search for the wealth of support available where you live, such as food deliveries to your home, transport options, help to stay active or feel less isolated, support for people looking after someone, home care and much more.
Eligibility for social care support
National eligibility rules set out within the Care Act 2014 determine whether you qualify for support from the council. A decision on your eligibility can only be made once we understand your needs. This is done through a support needs assessment.
Paying for adult social care
You may need to contribute towards the cost of your care. The amount you will be asked to pay will depend on your income, savings and expenditure.
Arranging and paying for your own care
Equipment and Technology
If you, or someone you look after is struggling with everyday tasks, then simple equipment, new technology or small changes to your home can make the difference between living independently and needing someone to help you.
Do you look after someone?
If you look after a family member, a partner, or friends in need of help because they are ill, frail, struggle with mental health or substance abuse, or have a disability, then you are considered to be a carer.
Mental Health Support
There are many types of mental health problems which can be caused by changes in people's lives such as bereavement, relationship breakdown, losing a job or unemployment.
Supported Independent Living
Supported independent living can be ideal for people with a learning disability, physical disability or mental health need who want to live as independently as possible and need some support to do so.
Extra care housing
Extra Care Housing is similar to sheltered housing in that the accommodation usually consists of individual, self-contained flats, each with its own front door.
