If you are a family member in Ealing who is in need in one of the services under the Think Family Plus programme, and are currently experiencing the difficulties described by the government criteria, please speak to a professional who can make a referral on your behalf.

If you are a professional working with a family in Ealing, you can either make a referral using the Frameworki database system (if you use it) or by completing a referral form. On the form please advise your recommended service for the family.

Please contact us if you have any queries, need assistance or would like to request a referral form:

Once your referral has been received

All referrals will need to be checked to ensure that the family meets the TFP criteria. If eligible, a member of the Think Family Plus team will contact you to progress your referral. You will be notified if the family is not eligible.

Please note that intensive interventions in Ealing will be decided by the intensive interventions panel which meets monthly.
