There are various referral methods,
If via CSC and under 18 usually referred by the ART team, if via the council or agency or direct then an application form is needed to be filled out.
An appointment is then made to come in, an assessment takes place which looks at history of the young person, support needs, risks. Then we will ask for background information from all relevant connected agencies. A decision will then be made if we can support the young person.
Assessment times at the Powerhouse Mon & Tues 9am-5pm. Appointments can be made by agencies or individuals but people can also just turn up and be seen that day. There may be a wait if an assessment is being carried out. Need ID and proof of benefit.
