Who can refer a family to Home-
Referrals can be made by any professional working with a family with children aged under five. Families can also contact us directly, or alternatively may be referred by a family member or friend. We ask you to discuss with the family needing support, before making the referral.
To ensure that we are offering a safe service, we have a cap on the number of families we can work with at any one time. To avoid disappointment and ensure we have availability, it can be helpful to give us a call before completing a referral form.
