Adult Social Care Factsheets

We are reviewing our written information and are reproducing our leaflets in a new, clearer, factsheet format.  Factsheets will contain concise information and details of where to access advice regarding each subject. Over the coming weeks we will be adding more factsheets to this page so please look out for them.

You can download copies by clicking on the links below, or you can request a paper copy by contacting us on 01202 633902 / email sshelpdesk@poole.gov.uk.

You will also see a file containing our factsheets in GP surgeries, libraries and other outlets. There are order forms with the file that you can use for reference and future requests.

Factsheets in large print are available on request.
