About Assessments on Making Life Easier

Professional help, tailored for every individual

What is an assessment?

An assessment is a set of questions that is built around people’s needs. For instance, if you were looking for help, the questions asked would be similar to what an expert would ask to establish what would solve your problem. At the end of each assessment you are automatically linked to the activities, products or services that are suitable for you, which may be free depending on your council or local authority.

Assessment questionnaires can be completed at any time of the day or night - it's all done through this website.

Reading Ruler

The reading ruler is to assist you with reading the website. The ruler will follow the movements of your mouse cursor, covering the space above and below to make it easier to read one line at a time.

Screen reader

Screen Reader

For blind and visually impaired users we recommend NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access), a free "screen reader" application which reads the text on the screen in a computerised voice.

You can control what is read to you by moving the cursor to the relevant area of text with a mouse or the arrows on your keyboard.
