  • Health and wellbeing
  • Housing options and support, including support for homelessness
  • Community safety
  • Travel and mobility
  • Social and physical activities
  • Help to stay independent
  • Equipment, gadgets and adaptations
  • What adult social care services are available, and how to plan your support
  • Specialist care and support
  • Support for unpaid carers
  • Financial advice and support
  • Opportunities to have your say
  • Useful contacts
  • Directory of care homes and nursing homes

The council’s Shropshire Choices website also provides information about a wide range of sources of help and support, including independent financial information, information about care homes and housing options. It can also help with keeping independent, getting out and about, keeping safe, health and wellbeing, employment and volunteering opportunities, and being a carer.

Tanya Miles, Shropshire Council’s executive director of people, said,

“Our Shropshire Support Finder is another way people can find information to help them get the support that’s right for them."
