How to make a referral
Each service user will require an active telephone line.
It would be preferable to have a minimum of two responders who live within a 45-minute driving distance, who have access to the property.
Where there are no local responders, the British Red Cross can act as the main responder; a key safe can be fitted at no additional charge to the service, so that they can gain access.
The services user’s GP surgery is an essential contact under professional involvements.
