Referrals into First Steps can be from a professional or on a self-referral basis (as the client chooses).
When someone is referred into the service, they will be contacted within 4 working days on receipt of the form.
A support worker will contact the client by their preferred method and invite them to attend an initial one-to-one session, before accessing the other services we offer. The support worker will make an assessment and recommend an individualized care plan, as well as signposting to other agencies, where appropriate.
We aim to empower the client to be in control of their recovery through peer and group support and inclusion in positive activities. We actively encourage multi-disciplinary working and work closely with other agencies to provide the best support package for clients.
