We offer as many items as possible either in-house or through partnership working.
What is a referral & how does it work?
A referral can be made by anyone who is not a friend or family member/carer of the child. The reasons for referral are varied, from financial pressure due to changes in circumstances to the general effects of living in a low or single income family. Over one in four children in Dundee are officially living 'in poverty'.
We welcome referrals from the following list of people. If it is you that is in need of support, please ask one of the following people that you have contact with and direct them to our referral form.
- Healthcare professionals e.g. Health Visitors, Midwives
- Non profit organisations
- Toddlers/ kids groups leaders in contact with families in need
- School and nursery staff
- Volunteers/ befrienders
- Council staff who work with families
- Job and government advice centres
- Social and Support workers
