Referral information for professionals

Family of three on sofa

Home-Start Slough works alongside other agencies from both the statutory and voluntary sectors, as well as self referrals. As Slough’s largest family support charity, we are an organisation that is valued and trusted by families and professionals alike.

More than 80 per cent of referrals to us are made by health visitors and social workers, as well as other professionals including teachers, community and school nurses and staff from children’s centres.

To refer a local family, we suggest you talk to them first about Home-Start Slough and how we might be able to help. It’s vital permission is sought from them beforehand, as our success at supporting families is because parents actually want us to be there.

If your family is happy to be referred, the next step is for you to complete a referral form, giving outline details of their situation. Please contact us if you would like to have this form sent by post or email.

If you have any questions about the referral process please contact us here at the Home-Start Slough office.
