Referrals & Assessments

Many of our placements are driven by families who recognise the uniqueness of our services.

Following an initial visit, the starting point for any placement is Social Services or, when relevant, the Health Authority. They, in turn, make a referral which is a request for an assessment.

Our comprehensive needs led assessment ensures we understand the individual’s needs and aspirations. The process involves meeting with family, school and any other stakeholders in the individual’s life.

Where we can meet an individual’s needs, the appropriate home is identified.
