Financially Supporting Children, Young Adults and Families

Spire Assist source and place diligent, compassionate care professionals to childrens' residential homes. All of our health and social care service providers are highly trained and fully qualified, able to meet the children in their care on an individual level. Whether a local authority or private enterprise, we can provide the right professionals, that slot into your organisation seamlessly. We also support various families and individuals in the local area financially. If you would like to make a referral, we are always looking for new people to support, in whatever way we can.




The Referral Process


To make a referral, the first step is to complete our form and submit it, via email, at Fill out as many fields as you can, to increase your chances of a successful referral.


We review every individual referral on merit, assessing the needs of the referee and the validity of the referral, to ensure that funds are allocated to those in the greatest needs. A decision is made within a week.


If your referral is successful, someone from our team will be in touch with the referred party for an introductory call. We'll get some details and arrange the transfer of funds or acquisition of agreed materials.





Referral Considerations

With a finite amount of funding available, Spire Assist must be selective with the referrals we accept. A number of considerations are made when deciding who shall receive funds, including:

  • Where the donation will be used.
  • For what purpose the donation will be used.
  • The circumstances surrounding the referee.

Why Make A Referral?

We don't just allocate funds in cash – we also take referrals for specific items and the like. We are proud to have been able to donate in excess of £30,000 to the local community, to between 100 and 120 individual families. We have also been able to help over 50 further families with:

  • Clothing
  • Food Shopping 
  • Groceries
  • School Uniforms

When you make a referral, you'll be helping to support those you care about and those that need a helping hand as they make their way into the next stage of life. Every referral can help us make a difference and, potentially, transform a life.




“I just wanted to email my thanks for the support from your staff and director during A's placement move. As we expected this was extremely challenging for A and, due to his volatile relationship with myself, I was not the best support for him during the transition to his new placement as my presence often triggers his anger and upset. Uzair, Fez, Danny and Saad (sorry if I have misspelt names) were so supportive of A helping him settle and bringing him down when he was extremely heightened. They did this with such a good balance of humour, affection and empathy, encouraging him to calm, smile and laugh under such a challenging experience for him. I really appreciate this and know that A did too. Thank you.”

“I know we spoke on the telephone but just wanted to say thank you to you and all of your team that have worked with C over the past few weeks. I know the circumstances have been a challenge at times but your team have done a great job with C and we are really pleased with the care and support he has received. Workers in my team have observed really positive relationships between C and your team and this has supported him to feel settled and safe in difficult circumstances. Also, C's new placement have commented to us that when your team visited with C this week for his transition visit she could see they had great relationships with him and that this had helped him remain settled.”

“I have been a qualified social worker for 20 years and have worked in many different settings in both the statutory and voluntary sectors within local authorities around the country. During this time, I have made referrals to dozens of services to provide child care to troubled children and teenagers. I can say with full confidence that Spire Assist have been one of the best agencies I have ever used to take care of my children and young people and I would highly recommend their services to any local authority in the country.”
