Referring a child

Ruby Naeem and carer

We welcome referrals of children and young adults in London who meet our acceptance criteria.

Our criteria is based on the one set by Together for Short Lives, a UK charity for all children with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions and all those who support, love and care for them.

Referrals can come from any source such as a family, a GP or hospital, as long as the child’s parent or carer with parental responsibility has given their consent. To make a referral, complete this Referral Form and either post it to us at the address at the bottom of this page or email it to our care team.

Alternatively, fill in the query form below and a member of our care team will call you to discuss your needs.

Referrals are considered at weekly multi-disciplinary meetings and families will be contacted within seven days with a decision. During this time we advise that you speak with your GP or consultant who can support you in gathering the required paper work.

If you have an emergency referral, phone our care team on 020 7540 0242.
