Somerset Independence Plus
We work from a preventative angle to help vulnerable people maintain their independence and stay in their homes.
We have a wider team which includes Occupational Therapists, Adult Social Care Workers, Caseworker, a Minor Adaptations team and a team of Grants and Technical Officers who help to oversee Disabled Facility Grants. The team is based out of our Independent Advice Centres, which will be a sort of one stop shop for all needs.
A Caseworker will come to do an initial assessment of the client around their mobility, finances, and home safety. This can lead on to other parts of our service, helping them to move, or signposting on to other appropriate agencies.
In South Somerset, home adaptations up to £1000 are available if you are eligible.
