The referral process
Referral status: Open
Referrals are only open whilst the Opportunity Nottingham Team has capacity to accept them. Once the team reaches full allocation, referrals will close until space becomes available again. There is not a specific time-frame for this process, and we are unable to offer a waiting list. If the referral status is showing as open above, please submit a referral following the process detailed below.
For further information on the referral process, download the Referral Information Sheet below.
If you are working with a service-user experiencing three or more of our four project criteria, you can refer them to us for an assessment.
In order to make a referral, a Risk Assessment Form and Referral Form must be completed. These can be requested via phone (0115 850 4128), by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or you can download them both below.
Once we receive the completed forms we will contact the potential Beneficiary directly, and arrange an assessment meeting. We will keep in touch with you throughout this process, and contact you to advise you of the outcome of the assessment. If the Beneficiary is accepted onto the project, one of our Personal Development Coordinators will create a Personal Development Plan with them. If they are not, we will signpost them to other services that may be able to help.
Please note: We are funded until June 2022. In the years prior to this we will cease to take referrals. Further information will be provided on this page and also via Twitter when we stop taking referrals completely.
