Adult Social Care is an umbrella term for a wide range of services that are available to qualifying people across Coventry over the age of 18. For more information about the complete Adult Social Care Offer in Coventry and the local area, please refer to the Adult Social Care Directory.
Within Social Care, sits the All Age Disability Service. The All Age Disability Service works alongside people with disabilities of all ages and their carers to support their personal, social care and health outcomes. The adults team within the service provides support to adults aged 18+ with a lifelong disability, such as learning disabilities, physical disabilities or an acquired disability.
Some children with disabilities may require social care support as an adult. In these circumstances, a child can be referred to the adult’s team via the child’s school, their parent or by the Children’s Disability Team if they are already receiving support from them. From there, an assessment under the Care Act (2014) will take place. The assessment will focus on the young person’s eligible needs once they become an adult. Read about the assessment process for adult social care support.
The service covers the entire city. Any adult, aged 18+ with a disability who thinks they have care and support needs can refer themselves to the service or a family member can contact the service on their behalf. The team can also receive referrals from other professionals, such as GP’s. The team communicates with individuals during their assessment, review or completion of a support plan; and overall by conferences, awareness raising events and for younger people and their carers - participation on SEN implementation groups.
For people aged 18 and over who receive support from adult social care they can get involved in the Adult Social Care Stakeholder Reference Group.
