How to get a referral
Social services, ART team and local Council.
Various referral methods. If via CSC and under 18 usually referred by the ART team, if via the council or agency or direct application then a homelessness assessment needs to take place, and we take the referral from the council.
An appointment is made to come in, an assessment takes place which looks at history of the young person and support needs risks. Then background information will bed asked for from all relevant connected agencies.
