Referral form – enhanced support (bought) items
Due to funding issues, we are currently unable to accept referrals for any enhanced support (bought) items. We are still happy to accept referrals for donated items – please complete the appropriate form to make a request
Guidelines for application
- In addition to providing donated items, we are willing to consider additional support (such as furniture, furnishings and electrical items) for those families in particular hardship, and those who are being rehoused after leaving the domestic violence refuge system. The Trustees of BBB will consider applications for such ‘Enhanced Support’ on a case-by-case basis. This support is intended to assist families in crisis, rather than to provide ongoing support with their housing arrangements, which is outside of our remit.
- Please note that all referrals must be made by a professional (such as social worker, teacher, health visitor, refuge worker etc.) working with families who suffer from financial hardship and must be for a family (at least one adult and one child under the age of 18)
- We also require that the person making the referral, or a colleague from the same organisation (named below) have visited the family in their home and made a thorough assessment of their needs before submitting the referral.
- In most cases, the volunteer dealing with the referral will pass on the recipient’s contact details to the company providing the item, to enable them to liaise regarding delivery.
