How to get a referral

Referral agencies

YPAASS (Young People Advice, Accommodation & Support Service) Hub nominations (referrals can be made by a number of partner agencies), or direct referral from Children's Services for under 18 emergency provision.

Referral procedure

Receive nominations via the recently renewed YPAASS (Young People Advice, Accommodation & Support Service) procedure. We will then assess their suitability for the project by conducting our own readiness assessment. Have a 6-bed emergency accommodation provision for under 18's whereby we receive direct referrals from Children's Services. They are required to complete a referral form and risk assessment and we will assess suitability for the project and if we can meet their support needs.
