Start

You can use this tool if you are a person needing help, adviser, or local authority practitioner considering an application for social services support. You will need information about the person’s immigration status.

Please note:

It will take around 10-15 mins to complete the tool.

The tool will generate guidance based on the answers you provide. It does not provide a guarantee that any form of help will be provided as this will be subject to assessment by the support provider.

For voluntary sector advisers and local authority practitioners, the tool will direct you to more detailed guidance.

Whilst every effort will be taken to keep the content up to date, the law changes regularly and people should seek appropriate advice where this is recommended.

The tool does not ask for confidential information, nor keep any record of personal details.

You will be able to email the advice provided to yourself but your email address will not be stored.

The advice provided about help from social services is based on English legislation with references to the equivalent legislation that applies in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
