Adult Social Care

Careline is Liverpool City Council's adult social care provision. If you, or someone you know, is eligible for support from adult social care, a support enquiry will help us decide what the next steps should be. The support enquiry is not an assessment - it will help to decide if you need a full care needs assessment or identify other options.
You can also call on 0151 233 3800, but the phone lines do get busy so you may prefer to refer online.
