    Referrals and recruitment


    Enquiries about the services offered by Arnfield Care Ltd are most welcome. Our Head Office staff, Head of Care, and/or Responsible Individual will be happy to help with any query.

    Referrals are assessed by the Responsible Individual, and as applicable Head of Care in consultation with the management team.
    A decision, whether we can accept a referral will be given promptly post a needs/risk impact assessment carried out via direct SW liaison. For prompt response, referral enquiries may also be made by telephone with additional information provided by email. If you prefer, you may download an initial referral enquiry form here and email it back to us. Our email details can be found on the contact us page.

    Our highly skilled staff teams have a wide range of experience and knowledge in working with young people with a variety of emotional, behavioural and other issues. However, our primary consideration at all times has to be the best interests of the young people who are already placed with us. On occasions therefore, we may not be able to accept a young person whose presence in the home may jeopardise the care or well-being of existing residents..
