As an Adult social care work provider our work is governed by Part 1 of the Care Act 2014. Every Local Authority has a function to promote an individual’s wellbeing. Your local authority is responsible for managing social care services in your area. Councils may provide some services themselves, or they may buy services from care providers to meet the needs of their community. In some cases you have to pay for all of your social care needs.

Very caring and reliable and good support staff behind the scenes. We have a separate team that handle my personal care, but all the other stuff is handled by WeAssist and really helps to promote my wellbeing.

Very good service with the most friendly and caring staff. They serve my food, prompt me to take my medicine, do my shopping and give me great companionship. I look forward to their daily visit.

This agency is absolutely fantastic and I would not hesitate for one second in recommending the carers or the management on how they care for clients.
