Once a referral has been made to us we will assess it and if appropriate, we will accept. We have an opt-in service where parents/carers are asked to contact us if they wish to proceed with an initial assessment.
A letter will be sent to you asking if you would like to opt-in to our service. You will have to contact us by a certain date, which will be in the letter. Once you opt-in, you will either be put on our waiting list or you will be sent an opt-in letter. You will be asked for any preferences over times/days of appointments. Following this assessment we can visit families at times that are convenient to them (within our working hours of 9-5).
How long do appointments last?
The initial assessment is normally 1 hour 30mins. Appointments after that normally last for 1 hour.
What to bring with me?
Just bring yourself!
Who can I bring?
Initial assessments are normally just the parents/carers, however the young person can attend.
Where you will be seen
We aim to see you for appointments at a CCHP base or Children's Centre that is most convienient for you.
The bases we frequently tend to work from are Woodland View, Eastgate House and Illmister Childrens Centre - see 'Visiting CCHP' related link on the right of this page for more details about CCHP bases.
