How to Refer

Family First is open to referrals from any community and statutory agencies, churches, primary care and schools. We welcome any informal enquiries to discuss how we may be able to help.

Community or statutory agency referrals

Following an informal enquiry and, in agreement with the family, a referral form should be completed. Please click on the links below to access a referral form and email it back to Sarah Stapleton Service Lead;

We will then arrange to visit the family, together with the referrer.

Once an Agreement has been signed by the family we will carefully match the skills and experiences of a volunteer to the needs of the family.
