We are experiencing a high volume of referrals at present…

and as a result it may take up to 4 weeks for us to arrange an assessment.

Thank you for your patience and understanding 🙂

Referrals

This form is for self-referrals and assisted self-referrals to access the lowdown’s services. An assisted self-referral is when you have someone who is helping you to complete this form. The information you provide will enable us to offer the most appropriate services and actions. It will be kept confidential and securely stored and shared as appropriate within the lowdown.

Confidentiality is central to our work but it is not absolute – there are legitimate exceptional circumstances which require the lowdown to share information with others, such as; if a person is at risk of serious harm by others; if a person is at risk of serious harm to themselves, or to others; or there is a risk of serious crime. View our Confidentiality and Privacy policies (copies are available on request).

Some information will be used for reporting purposes; in these cases the data will contain no identifying information that could associate you with receiving a service. Any other information will not be released without your consent unless required by law or a court order as stated above.

We are not able to offer you counselling / therapy if you are seeing another counsellor or psychological therapist, or if you are currently receiving a high level of Mental Health Care. In those cases, we might be able to offer you another support service which is not counselling.

SUBMIT A REFERRAL to THE LOWDOWN

Our form should just take a few minutes to complete. Please complete the form as fully and as accurately as you can. NOTE: The person being referred must be aged between 11-25 years and live in the NN1-NN7 postcode areas.

NOTE: If you experience difficulties completing our online web referrals form, you can also download our .pdf or .docx (word) versions to complete and return by email instead…

Prior to, during and after you receive a service, you can contact the lowdown on 01604 634385 or email: admin@thelowdown.info with any questions you might have.

“We understand that it can feel like a big step to take, but we are here for you. You are not alone…”
