The generation of referrals to Cedar is a barrier which some local projects have faced. The nature of some Cedar groups necessitates a large pool of referrals with a suitable mix of children and young people in terms of age, complexity of needs and gender. Referral volumes in part must reflect the challenges of publicising the programme and developing relationships and networks.
Needless to say, we want as many children and families as is possible to benefit from Cedar. We’d like you to share some tools which you think proved to be successful in the generation of referrals for your Cedar project.
