How to get a referral

Referral agencies

Accept self referrals and referrals from any agency.

Referral procedure

The most common way to refer is via the Inform website. If it is a self-referral, or the referring agency does not have access to inform, they can apply via the CHS website. Applications will be considered when a room becomes available. Suitable applicants will be invited for interview, and may bring the referrer/support worker or friend with them. Offers will be made by the multi-agency Allocations Panel.
