Get a referral form


Referrals are accepted nationwide from the Court, Local Authorities, parents’ legal representatives, Solicitors and Children’s Guardians.

Parents with children of all ages will be considered, and careful discussions will take place with the referring agent and other relevant professionals as to whether Majestic Family Services will be an appropriate service for each individual family.

All parents referred to Majestic due to an identified need for an in depth assessment of their parenting capacity.  In some cases the parent may be considered to present some level of risk to the environment or their child and additional information may be required before a decision can be made as to whether they would be a suitable placement for Majestic.

Referrals must in the first instance be discussed with our management team and admissions are usually pre-planned.  All referrals are given thorough consideration and impact risk assessments are undertaken to consider any matching considerations between current and proposed families.

We are happy to have an initial conversation by telephone or review the local Authority’s own referral form/family profile form however we can not formally accept a placement without the necessary information. The placing authority should return a completed Referral form together with any other appropriate documentation to the Manager. Supporting documentation should include:

  • Referring Social worker’s assessment report (stating clearly the objectives of the referral or a copy of the Care Plan)
  • Medical History
  • Social History
  • Psychological /Psychiatric reports
  • Court Proceedings, (prior and outstanding) also previous convictions
  • Any other reports, which may be suitable/required

Ofsted 'Outstanding' rated assessments

Assessments are conducted extremely well. The balance between assessment, support and guidance is thoughtful and reflective. Assessments change to consider the current parenting issues and parents progress quickly and responsively. One parent said in feedback to the centre: ‘Everyone works as a team. I could not ask for more support from them. They have made me more confident.
