Social Care

Sometimes children and young people and their families need help with social care needs – this means help with day-to-day activities such as:

  • feeding
  • washing and dressing
  • getting around
  • toileting
  • social interaction
  • managing complex relationships
  • independence
  • being part of the community
  • being safe in vulnerable situations
