Who is eligible for services?

There is a National policy on eligibility criteria for Adult Social Care Services. There is a framework within which an assessment should be based, which should look at an individual's ability to remain independent in the long and short term if help was not provided. Factors that make up the framework are autonomy, physical and mental health and safety, the management of daily routines, home environment, and family and community life

There are four bands of priority, Critical, substantial, moderate and low. ASCH are required to use these bands, but can set a line based on resources under which they do not have to provide services. Anyone below the eligibility line should be provided with information or advice or referred to another agency. Please contact St Helens Council contact centre for more information. 01744 676600
