Brunelcare has three Community Services teams in Bristol, South Gloucestershire and Somerset.

These teams provide home care services designed to support individuals living within their own homes, to help maintain their independence.

How does payment for the service work?

These services can be funded privately, via your personal budget, or through your Council.

Who to contact about the care and support you need

Whether you are able to self-fund your care or not really sure, in the first instance you should contact your local Council to discuss how to obtain the care and support you need.
