Find care and support
Our ability to connect you with somebody wonderful depends on where you live and what you want.
We are currently offering support in Calderdale in West Yorkshire and starting to give support in Clapton, Hackney in London.
We'll be working in other local authority areas as we grow.

Once we hear from you, we will give you a call or use your preferred communication method to understand your situation in more detail and let you know whether or not we'll be able to support you. We'll then arrange a visit from one of our Team Starters. They'll meet with you and anyone else you'd like to be present to have a conversation - they'll ask about what you'd like from the support and what's important to you. You'll find out more about how we work, the care and support workers available to join your team and we'll tell you about any volunteer support we're able to connect you with too.
Equal Care Teams are special. The person getting support is the person who owns (and in many cases, leads) their Team. It is up to them who is in the team and what team members can do. It's their team, so family members, friends, neighbours, health and social care professionals, other agency staff and so on can join if that person would like this! If they are too unwell to get very involved or would prefer not to for any reason, they can choose a family member or friend or an existing member of their team to help them. Every team has a Team Starter to support them with building their team and your Local Circle is there for problem-solving and checking in to see how things are going.
