Digital Wellbeing in Waltham Forest

14 December 2016
Family, young people and child support

We've launched three brand new self-service digital tools to help everyone in the borough take control of their own lives, live more independently, and begin to manage aspects of their own care. 

Have a look at the three sites below:

Waltham Forest Directory

The Waltham Forest Directory is the one-stop shop for information, advice and support services for all families across the borough. Whether you are looking for support for an older person or information on childcare, the directory will ensure you can the find all the information you need in one location.

Self assessment for Adults Social Care

The self assessment tool helps you check your situation in line with Care Act. A short series of questions will guide you to all the relevant information, advice and support. The tool will also spot any safeguarding issues or other risks and ensure they are addressed. Once the questions are finished you'll know if you are eligible for support and what to do next.

Equipment and Living Aids online marketplace

Waltham Forest Equipment and Living Aids online marketplace allows you to look for and purchase equipment that can assist you at home. Over 10,000 products are available from 11 different suppliers. Once you've chosen what you need you'll then be taken to the suppliers website to buy the items. You can also create shortlists to bookmark and compare the products.
