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.
