Social Care in Northern Ireland (booklet)

This booklet is about social care and support for adults in Northern Ireland who have multiple sclerosis (MS).

If you’re the carer of someone with MS, you might benefit from these services and support too.

This booklet guides you through social care, what services are available for people with MS and carers, as well as how you pay for them. The guide explains things like 'care and support plans', 'personal budgets' and 'direct payments'. It also offers tips on preparing for the assessment you have before you can get social care services.

This booklet covers social care in Northern Ireland. We also have booklets covering social care in England, Wales (with a Welsh language version also available) and Scotland.
