Single Point of Access
What is the Single Point of Access?
The Single Point of Access (SPA) offers a way to access a number of services who support the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people such as counselling, bereavement support, art therapy and mental health youth work.
Requests for Assistance (RfA) sent to the SPA by professionals, will be discussed at a meeting with a range of professionals (known as the Triage Team) who will offer advice, support and interventions.
The triage team meet every 2 weeks to assess new RfA and decide which would be the appropriate support for the individual child or young person.
Request for Assistance
Our expectation is that Requests for Assistance will generally be made through schools, as this allows us to gather relevant information. In instances where a young person is not in school or have other professionals involved who would like to request assistance, please contact: email@example.com
(only authorised persons can access the RfA form on this site)
If you are worried about the mental health and wellbeing of a child or young person and want some advice on whether a request would be beneficial please please contact your School's Mental Health Youth Worker. They can offer a wellbeing check with children and young people, signpost to supports and request assistance through the Single Point of Access, if necessary.
