Adult Social Care Support free access and self-referral support offers
Birmingham Adult Social Care works with people to help them stay independent and in their own home and community for as long as possible.
One way we do this is to provide free access to a range of offers so that people with low level adult social care needs and those worried about issues can get support to help tackle these things early on.
This page brings together all in one place these information, advice and support.
