Eligibility for care

Eligibility criteria are rules to ensure Redbridge Council provide services fairly to support those people whose needs most seriously affect their independence.

The government has set a national eligibility criteria that all councils need to consider when assessing what help can be given. Redbridge Council must use this framework.
