Changing Minds & Changing Lives

New Referral Form

We accept clients, male and female, aged 25 years and over with local connections in the area where accommodation, care and support is available.

When a referral is received, if appropriate, an appointment will be offered for a comprehensive assessment. Once assessed, if the client meets our criteria and a vacancy exists, a unit of accommodation will be offered. If a vacancy does not exist, the client will be put on a waiting list for consideration for when a vacancy becomes available. We take referrals from several sources including the NHS, Local Authorities, Housing Organisations, Prisons, Probation, The Police, Drug & Alcohol agencies, Homeless shelters, Approved Premises, and Veterans. 


Contact us or visit your local office and an appointment for an assessment will be offered. Details can be found in contact us
