Make a Referral
Welcare provides emotional and practical support to children and families experiencing temporary or long-term challenges. This includes parents, carers, children, siblings who may not be the primary service user, grandparents and help with extended family members to help build and strengthen family networks.
Any family with at least one child up to the age of 13 can receive support from Welcare and we will assess what help we are able to provide on a case by case basis.
We take referrals from both professionals and from families directly. Professional referrals may come from social services, schools, health visitors, other voluntary agencies, GPs, etc. provided consent from the family has been given. A family member must sign the referral form to confirm this.
To refer a child or family to Welcare please click on the centre they are closest to to access the relevant referral form. Please complete the form fully and send back to us by email or post using the details at the top of the form.
If unsure which centre your client is closest to you can contact us at our Central Office and we will be able to advise you.
