General information

Service offered: SCCM is a charitable specialist advice and advocacy service in community care law. We are committed to helping anyone with health or care needs or their carer receive the care or NHS funding or service they need. We cover Somerset and the surrounding counties and can visit people at home if required, but as we receive no funding from either central or local government, ask all our clients to consider making a voluntary contribution towards our travel costs if applicable and/or any casework undertaken after the initial enquiry. We are not able to offer Legal Aid but use the law to advise clients of their rights and in casework with the statutory authorities from whom we are seeking the provision of funding or services.
