How to get equipment

There are different ways you can get equipment.

You can work out what equipment would make your life easier by using a website called "AskSara"

It will ask you a few questions and then suggest equipment that could help you.

If your needs are a bit more complex, we can work out what equipment would help you by asking you a few questions.

Whether its a smaller item like a grab rail, perching stool or chair raiser - or something bigger - we'll work out the best thing for you.  We call this an assessment.

We will use the information you give us to help us meet your needs.  Find out how we use your information in adult social care (pdf).
