Support With Confidence – finding care and support you can trust

Whether you get financial help to pay for your care, or you buy services privately, the Support With Confidence scheme will help you find a wide range of care and support services that you can trust – from people and organisations that have been vetted and approved on grounds of quality, safety, and training.

The Support With Confidence scheme is run by East Sussex County Council Trading Standards and Adult Social Care.
