How to refer someone to the project

For the Eco-op day service please contact the Kingston Eco-op Operations Manager to check availability and charges for attendance. We can discuss support needs and answer any queries regarding our service and the referral process and informal visits to our service can also be arranged.

Referrals are often completed by a health or care professional and we can accept self referrals from family members. Funding for a place must be agreed before the person can start attending their chosen activities. After the initial referral is received a trial day will be offered and if the person likes Eco-op we ask for some further forms to be completed and a Service Agreement will be drafted and signed off prior to the start date.
