Shropshire Council

Care and support for different conditions

Shropshire is home to many services which provide specialist advice and support to help individuals, their families, friends and carers, as well professionals. This enables communities to be better informed and work together. Our aim is to encourage and support people to achieve.

Your health and wellbeing isn't only important to you but also enables you to remain an active member of your community. On our My Health page, you'll find useful information about accessing local health services and national health schemes.

Exploring your options for housing can be very confusing. Understanding and completing applications, securing and maintaining a home all require time and patience, and can often lead to many questions. Our Housing pages provide links to make the process easier.

Shropshire has many rural towns and villages where isolation can become an issue. Staying safe is important for everyone, and we need to look out for each other. Whether you have neighbours close by or not, our 'Staying safe in the community' page, provides local information and an interactive guide. 

If you're considering applying for your first job, returning to work or thinking about gaining new skills, you'll find useful information on our 'Employment and volunteering opportunities' page. You'll also find information there on entitlement to benefits.
