Under the Care Act 2014 the Council has a duty to carry out a social care assessment for anyone with needs.

You can get an assessment by phoning Access Harrow on 020 8901 2680 or emailing [email protected]

As part of the Positive Action London Mencap group we identified Assessments as a key area in which people needed more information and support.  As a result of this we worked to create this Easy Read guide to Assessments.  Getting the right assessment is the first step towards getting proper support from the local council.  This guide is designed to help you do that.
