Making a Referral

If you want to refer yourself, please telephone Elmore between 10am and 12.30pm to speak to a worker.

If you want to refer someone else, please complete the Common Referral Form and send this via email or post.

There is also a Guide to help you complete the referral form.

Elmore will respond to referrals as soon as possible. We do currently have a long waiting list, of around 4 months from receipt of referral to assessment. If accepted as a client, there is then a further wait of at least 6-months before you would be allocated a worker. Following the self-referral or assessment, we will try and signpost you to other appropriate agencies which may be able to support you while you wait for Elmore support.

We are also happy to speak to other professionals about potential referrals, and sources of support which may be useful for their clients.
