How to make a referral or signpost to a service 

In addition to providing contact details and information about local services and activities, the directory also provides the option to make referrals directly to some services and organisations. This means that if you find a service that you (or a family member, friend or client) would like to access, you may have the option to make a referral to the service by providing some basic information. 

Referrals are only available to some services that are prepared to receive them, are you will see a Refer to this Service button (see below) appear one these pages. Lots of local services and activities are free and open to the general public, but here possible we would encourage you to contact the service or organisation using the details provided.
