They are a team consisting of Social Workers and Occupational Therapists and they work primarily with adults. 

TOPAZ is involved in reaching out to communities via the various surgeries that are conducted within local organisations and faith groups.  They make contact with hard to reach communities, some of which may not have traditionally accessed council services.  They disseminate a variety of information, and discuss and advise on safeguarding issues.

TOPAZ is an integral part of providing personalised care services and supporting people to have greater choice and control over their lives.

They are contracted by Lambeth council to undertake adult assessments. They conduct a review when there is a change in circumstances, and sign-post people to a variety of council, health and community services.

They also visit residential and nursing homes to talk to residents and carers.  They see people who privately fund their care.  Their aim is to promote safety and to offer information / advice to enhance an individual’s wellbeing.
