We are an empowering service and encourage self-advocacy, this means we do not usually take referrals. Please signpost parents, children and young people to our service. If you feel that might be difficult for the person you are working with, you can contact us so that we can arrange to speak to the them when you are present. If this is not possible you can, with the person’s permission, ask us to contact them direct.
We have a range of leaflets that you can download to share with families you are working with:
