An initial enquiry for service is made to Birchwood, the young person is then invited in to interview/assessment at the Centre or one of our offsite offices. At this point the young person’s support needs/risk will be assessed. A decision can be made to either accommodate the young person, place them on our waiting list or sign post to other services.
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.
