How do I refer an individual to the service?
Applicants must complete a referral pack which you can obtain by calling us on 0121 384 9626, by emailing us or by completing our online form. Once the pack is completed it should be returned to us with a copy of the potential clients' current care plan and risk assessment.
Referrers will be made aware whilst progressing through this process that there will be an expectation for the individual's current Care Coordinator to attend housing reviews held every 4 - 6 weeks to assist them to follow the process with their client.
If you would like to arrange an informal visit to the property, please contact us during office hours and we will arrange for this. We can also arrange for a meeting to complete the paperwork with you if you feel this is needed.
