Social Services Single Point of Access
The RCT Single Point of Access Team (also known as SPA) is based in Ty Elai, Williamstown, and provides a remote assessment service, providing information, advice and assistance.
The Single Point of Access (Adult Services) undertake a proportionate assessment by having a “What Matters” conversation, usually over the telephone, during which they identify the outcomes for the individual. The Single Point of Access will then pass the assessment to other teams for a more specialist assessment or commission appropriate preventative or community services.
