Frequently Asked Questions

How can I refer?

Children and young people can refer themselves for this support. We also accept referrals from parents and referral partners.

Once referred, what happens next?

After receiving the referral, we will respond within 48 (working hours) to inform the referrer if we are able to accept the referral. If we can, a Acceptance letter will be sent to the referrer and the young person may be placed on a waiting list until a Youth Development Worker has capacity.

If we cannot accept the referral, we will respond with our non-acceptance letter sent to referrer.
