Adult Services Overview

Adult Services are part of the Social Services Directorate within the City of Cardiff Council.

Cardiff 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.

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