Anyone, professional or non-professional, can make a referral to our services. Once submitted, we will acknowledge receipt of the referral within 10 days and, with your permission, ask for evidence of brain injury from a medical professional. Referrals will be passed to one of our Information & Outreach Officers who will arrange to meet the person with a brain injury and/or their carer/family member. During this meeting our Information & Outreach Officer will conduct an initial needs assessment and can provide information resources and further information about our services.
When completing the referral form, please try to fill out as many sections as possible and provide us with as much information as you can. Following the referral, if we believe that the person is not suitable for our service then we will always help signpost to other organisations.
If you have any questions about the referral process please get in touch.
