How to Access Social Care
1. Independence Advice Hub
Independence Advisors, who act as a guide, mentor and coach, helping callers find tailor made solutions that meet their individual needs, will discuss opportunities including digital offers, self-service possibilities and community alternatives to paid for services by looking at a person’s strengths, skills and the resources that they have in their life.

3. Community Led Support Hubs
Community Led Support (CLS) programme is a national scheme that Bradford has supported. This involves a network of over 30 statutory organisations with responsibility for adult social care working with their partners and communities to design and deliver different ways of working which maximise the strengths and community connections of people locally.
In Bradford the local community Social Worker teams have setup 'CLS Hubs' within the communities to support an additional access point for people to discuss their support needs in person.

4. General Practitioners Referral and other Professionals
General Practitioners, or Family Doctors, and other family and/or health professionals, are able to contact Adult Social Care on your, or a loved one's, behalf to raise awareness of your care needs that health would potentially be unable to support.
