We accept self-referrals from young people over the phone. We welcome referrals from all professionals. Of these referrals, we give priority to young people who have been referred by Brighton and Hove City Council Housing Options & Allocations Team, and the Leaving Care Team. To request a referral form please send an email or call us- see email address and phone number given below. We aim to acknowledge referrals within 24 hours if the client is in crisis or within 48 hours for standard support.
