Devon County Council does not hold contracts with the fire services to deliver adult social care related services, therefore we do not hold this information.

In the interest of providing you advice and assistance we suggest you contact district councils who may hold these contracts with the fire service. Please find details for each of the district councils in Devon on our website at;
