Young people may be referred to TYKES by a number of agencies including both statutory and voluntary and by self-referral.


The process for the actual referral can be made in the following ways: -

  •  Telephone    
  •  Referral form  
  •  Personal visit to TYKES office
  •  E-mail 

Any individual making a referral via the telephone, e-mail and personal visit to the office will be asked a number of questions relating to the situation of the young carer.

When all appropriate information has been ascertained the referral will be given to one of our fieldworkers for action. The member of staff dealing with the referral will contact the family concerned and introduce the project and what it may be able to offer support wise.
