More about us
We offer support with:
Completing an assessment of your health and social care needs
Reviewing existing service and support
Completing Carers Assessments and providing advice to carers
Providing advice and guidance on issues around benefits, housing, employment, education and training
Providing information and signposting to appropriate services
Setting up personal budgets and assisting you to find an appropriate service
The support we offer will include directly supporting service users, their families and carers through crisis and facilitating change which leads to improved wellbeing, life skills, independence and opportunities. The offer of a Care Act Assessment is usually our first point of contact with service users. This will identify someone’s eligible care and support needs. The team then carries out the support planning and micro-commissioning required in order to meet these needs including the setting up of direct payments.
We have strong links with the Complex Health Needs Service and other local providers who work within our locality. We signpost and make direct referrals to local services. This holistic approach is vital to achieve good outcomes for service users and manage complex decisions and risk.
We will also work with you to keep you safe, promote independence and facilitate change. This could be support in getting a job, moving home or learning new skills. This is likely to include working closely with other agencies to meet these outcomes.

How do people access your service?
If you are eligible for social care services under the Care Act 2014 you will need a financial assessment and may have to make a financial contribution towards the cost of your care (this would be in line with Bath and North- East Somerset council’s financial assessment policy).
Type Of Service
We support the following age groups:
Who can use your service?
Any child/young person registered with a B&NES GP AND attending Three Ways or Fosse Way School or specialist nursery provision
Any child/young person registered with a B&NES GP AND attending a mainstream school if they have a moderate/severe learning disability. As a rough guide, this means that a child is functioning at about half their chronological age.
If you live outside the B&NES area, your child may still be able to receive our service providing they are registered with a B&NES GP and meet either of the criteria above.
Parents/carers can refer to us directly by phone. Professionals can make a referral to us by completing a Single Point of Entry form (SPE) and sending to the address on the form.
We are only able to provide case management support and therefore we are unable to provide diagnoses.
If you would like to be considered for a diagnosis you would need to obtain agreement from your GP to access BASS @ Bath and North East Somerset Diagnostic Service. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
