We accept referrals from a range of services/organisations and young people can also self-refer.

Support is on a voluntary basis and the young person must want to engage with the service.

Contact will be made with the young person within the first two weeks, on receipt of referral for a getting to know you meeting.

A match meeting will determine if and when a young person will receive support. The young person and referrer will be informed of the decision.

Priority is given to cases with high need. Should there be a waiting list, a young person will not be on this for longer than three months.

You can send completed referral forms to the following email address:
