Help and Guidance

We know that finding out about the right care and housing services you need can be daunting.

This guidance is designed to help answer your questions and to provide relevant information.

I pay for my rent myself - how do I apply for your housing?

In the first instance contact Bristol City Council’s HomeChoice team whose details are published on www.homechoicebristol.co.uk

We need a carer at home - do you provide them and how do we apply?

Brunelcare provides home care and support services in Bristol, South Gloucestershire and Somerset. Please view our Home care pages for full details.

Will I have to fund my care home place?

This depends on your care needs and individual circumstances. If you know you will be self-funding your place, please contact one of Brunelcare's Care Home Managers directly. If unsure, please contact your local council for a care assessment in the first instance.

Tenant Services

From fixing a leaking pipe to helping with a rent query, our housing and property team is on hand to support our tenants, ensuring that help is available whenever needed.
