Getting referred

If your child or your family need our help, all you have to do is ask.

Often referrals are made by consultants, GPs, care professionals, social workers and so on, but you can refer yourself or your child to us directly too.

Simply complete this form to help us get a better understanding of your situation. This will help us make sure you get exactly the right support for you.

All referrals are reviewed fortnightly by our multi-professional panel, which assesses whether you meet our eligibility criteria. If you do, a member of our team will visit to get to know you and how we can best support you. 

If you or your child do not meet our eligibility criteria, we will call you to let you know and we will confirm that decision in writing to you and the professionals involved in your child’s care. We will also try to signpost you to other services which may be able to offer help or support for you and/or your child.
