Criteria for Early Years Setting

Referrals to the service come through Tulsa, Public Health Nurse and Family Support Services. 

Families who meet the criteria will be invited to visit the Organisation to meet staff and get an overview of the service. If they wish to progress the referral, they are given an application pack.
