Make a Referral

Referrals

Whether you’re a professional, family member or friend, this is the place where you can connect a family with us. To make a referral, you’ll need to complete our referral form.

What happens next is we’ll make an assessment and agree on the type of support to be given and the best programmes for each individual circumstance. If you’re a parent or a carer we’d encourage you to complete the form and we’ll work through the details together as things progress.

You can also learn more about the programmes first. Or if you’re not sure then contact our team.

At the moment, we work in the following locations:

  • Camden
  • Islington
  • Lambeth
  • Southwark
  • Westminster

The programmes we run include 1:1 sessions, mentoring and parenting workshops. Each one is different and every family and child will have a unique set of goals to work towards that are based on their individual strengths.

I realised I am good.

Family Sessions

The family unit is the centre of a child’s life and how we work as a group will be the measure of our success. The way we work is to understand individual circumstances and develop a plan that can support everyone in a young person’s life to empower them all. With aspects such as 1:1’s, ASTB, FADS, PLICS.

The experience is transformative and their impact is proven.

How are they so effective?

We know that a one-size-fits-all approach is not a fit. We focus on knowledge and skills that can last a lifetime and most importantly, are built around individuals.

This form is part 1 of a 2 part referral form for Chance UK's programmes. Part 1 below will establish basic eligibility. Part 2 will ask for details about the family and how we may support them.

Referrals are OPEN for the Explore & Empower family service in Lambeth.

Please note, we have reached capacity for referrals with Autistic Spectrum Condition and cannot accept any more of these referrals in this intake.

This supports families with children who display challenging behaviour. Newly referred families, with a child meeting our behavioural threshold are entitled to access: 

  • Children will receive up to 9 months of input from a Chance UK mentor and staff. 
  • Families and mentors agree to adhere to Chance UK's policies around safe sessions during the Covid-19 pandemic. Children can have in-person 1:1 sessions in the community following guidelines if it's safe to do so, or remote 1:1 sessions if it's not. 
  • Parents and carers will have 1:1 support and group options from our Family Support team 
  • Chance UK Programme Managers will provide remote contact with the child before they can be matched with a mentor.
  • With Chance UK’s support, children and mentors will identify the child’s strengths, use solution-focused talking tools to improve issues, and make and complete goals. Families will review and support these changes and progress, have support to access group work from Chance UK as well as the option of accessing support from other organisations. 
  • Families will graduate from the programme after 9 months. After this, all contact between the family and the mentor will stop after graduation.
