Sefton's Adult Social Care teams

There are lots of teams working in Adult Social Care at Sefton Council who can support you with your care. Find out more about each of them below.

Approved Mental Health Professionals

Approved Mental Health Professionals (AMHPs) assess people under the Mental Health Act. They are the people who decide whether someone needs to be admitted under the act for additional mental health support.

They will always try to find other ways to help people before they need to be admitted. During their assessment, they will look at medical facts as well as the individual, their needs and their social circumstances.


Community Equipment

Sefton Council's Community Equipment team is made up of assessors and technicians who can install minor equipment in homes. This includes things like handrails and ramps that can be installed to help people to remain independent at home, or give them extra support after leaving hospital.


Technology Enabled Care (TEC)

Our TEC team offers support and guidance to people in Sefton on the best equipment and technology to help them with their care at home. When equipment isn't available through Sefton Council, they can signpost people to the best place to purchase helpful items.



The Telecare team provide personal devices such as fall detectors and pendants to help people to remain safe and independent in their own home. Any sensors will raise an alert with the Telecare team, who can offer help if needed.
