CAN ANYONE REFER A YOUNG PERSON TO CHANGE OF SCENE?
To ensure we reach those most in need, Change of Scene only takes referrals from educational professionals.
I AM A PARENT WORRIED ABOUT MY CHILD. HOW CAN I ACCESS YOUR SERVICE?
Please ask someone involved in your child's care (school senco, local authority SEN, social worker etc) to email: email@example.com
HOW DO I MAKE A REFERRAL?
To make a referral, please complete and return the Change of Scene referral form. We operate Egress Switch for added confidentiality. Change of Scene has only a small number of weekly spaces; should all these be full, we operate a waiting list. Places are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
WHAT HAPPENS IF A SPACE BECOMES AVAILABLE?
Along with a parent/carer and member of the referral agency (if appropriate), the young person attends a referral session to meet their key worker, see round the site and ensure we can meet their needs. This generally lasts around an hour and the decision on whether to attend always rests with the young person themselves.
