Vale Of Glamorgan Council

Adult Services Overview

Adult Services are part of the Social Services Directorate within the Vale of Glamorgan Council.

Vale of Glamorgan Adult Services are responsible for making sure that older people, adults with physical disabilities, mental health needs, learning disabilities and vulnerable people get the information, advice and support that they need. This is to ensure individuals maintain their independence, to increase their quality of life and to help people lead fuller, more enjoyable lives. For most people this will mean finding out ways to support themselves or improve their own quality of life. For a small number of people we may need to provide more support.

What we will do for you

If you need social care and support we will:

  • provide advice, information and services that support your independence
  • focus on what you can do for yourself and work to help you maintain and improve your abilities
  • find the most cost effective way to provide support, to meet the needs of all people who are eligible for care
  • promote choice and control so you can receive support in ways that are meaningful to you.

Our aim is to help people stay living safely at home or in their own communities for as long as possible.
