How to Refer

Each young carer must be referred to the project before we can start working with them. The referral form can be completed by a parent, social worker, teacher etc.

When we receive your referral form it will be held on our waiting list. We will write or call you when a space becomes available and we will come out to visit you. This is usually arranged at home or somewhere that’s comfortable to you and your family. We will talk to you about your situation and find out more information and see how we may best be able to support you.

If you do not want us to visit you and just want some information, or to join our mailing list for newsletters and updates, that is fine – you just need to let us know what works best for you and your family.
