What is this?

If you are not eligiblefor support from the Council, you may still find the following information helpful to organise your support.  When you were planning your support, you decided on how you want to be supported and wrote an action plan.  Now you can begin to get your support organised.

We will help you to organise your support, or you can do this yourself if you prefer with the help of friends and family or with another organisation or person that isn't part of the Council.

You may find it helpful to look at details of the types of support services that are available.
