The Somerset Community Care Matters  project provides specialist advice, help and casework in the field of Community Care law the name which applies to all advice about healthcare from the NHS, social care from social services and disability rights and entitlements to care and support.

Community Care matters are covered by government rules and regulations. If you, or someone you care for, have difficulty accessing these services, we can advise you on how to take the first steps to obtain the help you need. This may be to help find your way round the health and social care system or question a decision you think is wrong.

We can do case work for those eligible for Legal Aid. We can also provide advice and help for those who are not and/or direct them to where they can get further help. We: –
