Face to Face Referrals

Face to Face is for children and young people aged 5 to 18 who live in:

  • a children's home
  • foster care
  • kinship care
  • young offenders institution
  • secure immigration or removal centre.

We also work with children and young people: 

  • at risk of going into care
  • adopted
  • care leavers (up to the age of 19)
  • who have recently returned home from care, or
  • who have recently run away from home or care.

Children in care can refer themselves to Face to Face or they can be referred by someone who is working with them such as a social worker, teacher or foster carer.

How to get help from NSPCC services

Sometimes you may be referred to one of our services by someone who already helps you, like a midwife, social worker, teacher or children's centre worker. You can join some of our services yourself, simply by contacting us to see if a place is available.

If you think a service that is available in your area might help you and your family, get in touch to find out more.
