Focus is a Community Interest Company, not-for-profit organisation that provides Social Work for adults who reside in North East Lincolnshire on behalf of the local Council. Based at Heritage House in the centre of Grimsby, Focus was established in 2013 and works in partnership with the Council and Integrated Care Board (ICB). Focus also collaborates with a wide range of social care and health providers in both the public and private sector to improve the quality and efficiency of local health and well-being services.
Our social workers provide advice and guidance, assess people’s needs, arrange for services to meet their eligible needs, periodically review each individual’s needs and adjust support plans and services accordingly.
Focus also provides a wide range of training courses to public and private health and care organisations in North East Lincolnshire to help improve the quality of services as well as to support compliance with relevant legislation, from Health and Safety to the Mental Capacity Act and Safeguarding.
Focus works closely with the Council to assess individuals with regard to any legally required financial contributions to their support costs. This also involves taking into account people’s additional needs due to disability or infirmity when agreeing contributions.
