STREET introduces new online referral form
Referrals to the ‘Safe Teen Relationship Education and Empowerment Team’ (STREET) can now be made online.
STREET Gloucestershire, which supports young people aged 13-19 years who have been affected by domestic abuse or teenage relationship abuse, are launching a new online referral form. From today, referrals can be made using an online form on the Gloucestershire Domestic Abuse Support Services (GDASS) website. This replaces the current paper form creating a single service pathway into the service and making it easier and more efficient for those completing it.
You can access the new referral form here.
Referrers will receive a confirmation email once the referral has received by the service manager.
Where a young person, aged 13+ is currently experiencing abuse in their intimate relationship, or where the relationship has ended within the last 3 months, we also encourage a Young Persons Domestic Abuse Stalking & Harassment (DASH) risk assessment to be completed and included as part of the referral. This form measures any risk posed to the young person and will ensure STREET is able to design the most effective package of support for them. Guidance on how to complete a DASH and where to send it are explained on the online referral form.
How do I refer to STREET Gloucestershire?
Anyone concerned about a young person who has been affected by domestic abuse, or by abuse in a teen relationship, can make a referral by filling in the online form on the GDASS website – www.gdass.org.uk/contact
Anyone referring to the service is asked to make sure that the young person and, if under 16 years old, their parent/guardian has consented to the referral.
A completed referral, sent via the online form, will guarantee contact with the young person and their family within 10 working days. Referrals via the old referral route will continue to be accepted for the next few months whilst we ensure that all partners are aware of the new system.
