Refer a family to us

 

Are a professional working in Newham, dealing with a family in need? If the family has under-fives facing housing issues you can refer them to us for additional support. 

We take referrals from RAMP, GPs, Health Visitors, Social Workers, Housing Officers, ESOL teachers, Family Support Workers, social prescribers, other charity workers.

To refer to us simply fill in the Magpiereferralform, and email it to us, or better still give it to mum to bring to us when she comes to a session.

If mum needs accompanying or encouragement to get to the project please contact us with her contact details and we can organise a volunteer to be in touch.

Please note that this is at present a women only project. Please do not refer men.

Also, please understand that each family will be assessed according to need on arrival and a support package and timescale agreed.

Unfortunately, because so many families in Newham are struggling – more than 1 in four – we are unable to offer a full support package to those who have access to their benefits.

While these families are welcome to access help from services who attend we will not be able to supply all mums with: financial assistance: unlimited nappies: unlimited Foodbank referrals.

Please, when referring, you do not raise expectations that we then have to disappoint.
