Referral Process

The usual process for requesting a placement for supported accommodation with Abiding Care is as follows:

  • an initial telephone consultation to discuss vacancies and appropriateness of the referral with regard to the needs of the young person

  • completion of a referral form and provision of supporting information

  • an assessment of the referral and possibly a visit to the accommodation by the young person

  • agreement on funding arrangements for the placement

  • the young person will meet their key worker where the house rules and routines will be explained

  • a placement date will be agreed

  • a placement planning meeting will be held within 72 hours of placement

Abiding Care will consider taking emergency placements.
