My name is Tania and I am a Social Work Team Manager for Enfield Council.
I have been asked to write a blog about how you can contact Adult Social Care (Social Services) to discuss your circumstances and receive a Care Act Assessment, also referred to as ‘Needs Assessment’, ‘Social Care Assessment’. I hope you find this information useful.
Firstly, I would like to start off by telling you that you do not need to have a diagnosis of Autism to contact Social Services, or to request to have a Care Act assessment/ Needs Assessment. I know that some of you may be going through the diagnostic stage or waiting for confirmation of a diagnosis and would like to know if Social Services can connect you to support, or if you are eligible for services.
