Process for Referrals

Each person referred to Dolphin Homes is treated as an individual whose needs, abilities and personality are assessed in detail in order to ascertain their suitability for placement within one of our homes. Referrals can be made by a Social Worker/Care Manager or directly from parents themselves.  However, before assessment can take place the Care Manager acting on behalf of the individual must be consulted.

In addition to the assessment carried out by Dolphin Homes, the referral process also includes inviting family, friends and Care Managers to visit any suitable homes to see for themselves the environment and services available. Where it is not possible or appropriate for the individual to visit in person we recommend a visit by someone who knows their needs well and can advocate on their behalf.

A transition plan can then be put in place for the individual and it is specifically tailored to their needs and provides as much support as possible to aid the person in the move to their new home.
