Gateway to Care

Gateway to Care is your first point of contact for adult social care. They are here to offer you practical information and advice which will help you to continue to live independently at home. This may include, for example, help with mobility and confidence after an accident, illness, injury or deterioration in a condition.

The Gateway to Care team includes friendly, experienced social care advisors, clinical advisors and social workers who bring their expertise together to make sure you receive coordinated care, support and advice.

The service was set up after the Council and NHS Calderdale asked patients, the public and staff about the kind of services they would like.

People said that they wanted a way to get help and advice quickly and easily, with one assessment. People also said they wanted to avoid being admitted to hospital and wanted services to work together to care for them safely at home instead.

If you already use services provided by Calderdale’s social care teams you can contact Gateway to Care to provide them with information (such as your holiday dates) or to ask them to contact you. Gateway to Care number makes it easy for you to contact us so that we can improve services to you.
