Care and Support to help you live independently

Our aim is to help older people and adults with physical and mental disabilities live as independently as they can, with as little intrusion into their lives as possible.

In the past, adult social care in Doncaster has been based on a traditional ‘assessment for services’ model, which has resulted in people being given care packages that don’t necessarily fit with their lifestyle. Our new approach will provide people with the most relevant support for their individual needs, keeping them as independent as possible

We understand that everybody is different, and believe that this should be reflected in the care and support offered by the council to those people who need it.
