The Orange Door understand that you may be contacting for information, advice, consultation and you may have some details but not all about the family.

When making a referral to The Orange Door you will be asked for as much information as possible about the family (see referral form).

The Orange Door will talk with a referrer about their involvement with the family and whether consent is possible and if the family is aware of the referral being made. Whilst they do not technically need client consent to receive a referral wherever possible based on safety considerations The Orange Door would prefer a service has been able to inform the family of a referral where child wellbeing concerns are present. Particularly as The Orange Door will explore with a referrer any opportunities to remain involved with a family and continue to support them, in addition to the referral to additional services such as Family Services.
