Local links to living well

Many people in west Cheshire need extra support to live full and enjoyable lives. 

The practical help provided by social care services can make a real difference to those that struggle with everyday tasks.  And for our most vulnerable residents, social care is critical to help them live as well as possible. 

Social care isn’t just about health. Helping people to live well could mean advice on housing, jobs, being part of the community, or services for people who need more intensive, 24-hour support in a care home setting.

You can find details about the support, advice and guidance available in west Cheshire on the Council’s Local Officer Website.  See clearly what services are available to you and the people you care about, and how to access them.   

Cheshire West and Chester Council works closely with many organisations in the independent, voluntary and community sectors to make sure services are joined-up and clearly signposted. The Local Offer covers services for children and young people, families and adults so the website provides a central one-stop-shop for all our residents and care professionals.

The website can help with:

  • support for carers
  • advice about suspected abuse or neglect
  • living safely at home
  • staying independent
  • identifying care needs
  • paying for care and support  
  • choosing the right accommodation.
