How Can I Get a Support Worker?

Funding For Formal Support

If you have support needs that require on-going weekly support, you may be entitled to a personal budget to pay for support. You will need to undergo a Social Care Act needs assessment with the local authority. A social worker will talk to you about your support needs and assess your eligibility for a personal budget.  This can be arranged by contacting Oxfordshire’s Social and Health Care Team on 0345 050 7666.
