Once you have contacted Social Services, they will refer your young adult to an appropriate team for a needs assessment, which looks at their care and support needs. There are three main teams which support adults with additional needs in RBKC, with each team specialising in a different set of support needs. They can offer assessments and packages of care and support in order to help adults live as independently as possible.
