Work out what assessment you need - Do you need a single assessment of a Father or Mother, a joint assessment of both parents or a specialist sexual offender, third party or family assessment? Visit our assessment page for more information or contact an expert to discuss the case.
Send documents related to the case - Our expert assessors read all the case documentation in order to produce a thorough assessment of the risks/vulnerabilities. The documentation needed depends upon the status of case (i.e whether it is in court proceedings, at PLO, CP or CIN) once the practice manager has received the referral form she will let you know what is needed.
Liaise with the assessor - After submission of a referral the practice manager will let you know which of our experts have been assigned to your case, the assessor will then speak to you to make arrangements for the client interviews.
Our assessors work quickly in order to complete assessments within timescales so please do not hesitate to get in touch in advance if there are any problems completing the referral form or providing documentation. We are here to help you make the best decisions for your client on time and within budget.
