How you access support
To request a referral you need to post or email a completed Preliminary Application Children Form to us, please download this form at the bottom of this page.
If you have any difficulties completing the form, we are happy to help.
Once we have received your form, a manager will contact you to discuss the kind of support you would like.
If you then decide to take the application forward and we feel that we can provide the support you need, we will carry out an assessment. This means that we will meet with the child/young person, relevant family members and professionals to discuss needs and ways to support.
