Tell us about yourself
If you feel you or the person you care for may need support, contact us to discuss how we might be able to help.
You can complete a care needs self assessment if you or the person you are caring for is 18 and over and has -
- health problems
- a physical disability
- sensory impairments
- a learning disability
- mental health problems that mean you need support to be safe or live independently
The 'care needs assessment' lets you tell us about any conditions or disabilities you have which affect your wellbeing.
Hull City Council then assess this against the criteria set out in the Care Act 2014 to determine who can be provided with support services.

What happens next
We review your information and contact you to discuss your social care needs.
If after discussing your needs we find you are not eligible for support from adult social care, we can still help and advise you about other sources of support.
If you do meet the criteria for receiving council arranged care, adult social care can create a package of care for you.
Paying for care
There is no charge for the initial care assessment, but Adult Social Care is not a free service. You may be able to receive financial support towards the cost of services you receive. The amount of help you are entitled to depends on your financial situation and is affected by your savings, investments, benefits and earnings.

You can find out what your contribution towards your care might be by completing our quick and easy paying for care calculator

If you have over £23,250 in capital or savings, you are not entitled to funding from the council and will have to pay the full amount of your care costs. This is called self-funding.
You can choose to arrange your care services directly with your care provider and make sure your requirements are met how you want them to be. If you want help to arrange these services, adult social care can support you to do this
This website has lots of advice and information on a variety of things that can support you in the community that you may find useful to help you live your life.
