So what happens Now?

Our Duty Team will review your referral to check we are the right service for you and have all of the information we need. We may call you, but we will only do this if we need to and you have told us it is ok to do so.

One of our practitioners will get in touch with you to organise a good time to call you to complete a Service Assessment with 42nd Street. The telephone call will be approximately 1 hour. This is your opportunity to find out more about 42nd Street and for 42nd Street to understand how best we can support you and ensure you get the right support as quickly as possible.

Waiting for Support

After the Service Assessment,  you will go onto a waiting list. Keep up to date with opportunities to get involved in our creative and group work programme – you can get involved in some of these straight away. Join us on Twitter: @42ndStreetmcr   | @TheHorsfall

42nd Street’s site has lots of self-help resources and more information about individual therapeutic support and projects & activities.

Please call us if you are feel that things are getting more difficult. You will be able to speak to a practitioner – don’t suffer in silence!  Please call between 9:30 – 5pm Monday – Friday.
