• All basic details are completed on the referral form (correct names and spellings, siblings details, date of birth, addresses, ethnicity, first language, disabilities etc)
• The referral must clearly identify the concerns and the impact on the child as well as what support has been provided previously to help families address these concerns and what strengths/resilience is within the family.
• Referrals should set out what the referrer wants to see happen as a result of the referral, and should include the views of the family and, where appropriate, the child or young person.
• The more information that is provided, the easier it is for Children’s Social Care to make a decision about the best course of action to take in respect of the child or young person.
Once you have completed the referral form it will need to be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
