Download Referral Form


We are a charity, and so don't charge fees.

If you are supporting someone you think could benefit from joining Bridewell please download and post us a completed Referral Form. We will then contact you to discuss your referral or we may contact your service user directly to arrange an assessment at Bridewell by one of our trained staff. The timeframe from referral to contacting for assessment is typically 7 days. If we have a place available, your service user would usually join Bridewell about a week after having been here for an assessment.

We welcome visits from referrers, where a member of our team can explain what we do and why it works. If you'd like to come and see our garden, or with any other queries, please contact us:
