How to refer someone

We currently accept referrals for adults (18+) with Care Plans from all London Local Authorities as well as from the Authorities in Bristol, North Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Bath and North East Somerset.

This is either through Direct Payments, Personal Budgets or Spot Purchasing arrangements.

Referrals can be made by GP's, Occupational or Art Therapists, Community Mental Health Team, Support Workers, Social Workers or Psychiatrists as well as through partner agencies in the voluntary sector. 

Please complete the referral form. After completion we will arrange an initial visit for your client to discuss the plan and complete the membership agreement.
