We can also help you to get support for:

  • mental or physical health concerns

  • loneliness and isolation
  • and many other issues

.How to ask for help

To make a self-referral (or a referral on behalf of any Trust tenant), download the Support Wellbeing Team Referral Form and either email or post the completed referral to us.

What happens if I ask for help?

After we receive the referral, we will make a decision about whether we can help you or whether we need to refer you to another service. You will be contacted within seven days of us receiving the referral and we aim to see you within a month if we have offer support. If your referral is deemed to be urgent, we will come to see you as soon as possible.

When we visit you, we will complete some paperwork with you to help identify your support needs. We will then discuss the best ways to address your support needs and develop a support plan together. This is a document agreed between you and your support worker. It is individual to your circumstances and will be regularly reviewed with your support worker to meet your needs.

The amount of support you receive and the length of time you receive it will depend entirely on your situation and what help you need. The aim of your support is to enable you to become self reliant in your home - it is continually assessed and is dependent on your commitment. The service is entirely confidential and we will not pass on your information unless you give us specific permission to do so. For more information, consult the Privacy Statement on the reverse of the Referral Form.
