Children and Young Persons Therapeutic Service - West Sussex

Important update

We are temporarily pausing accepting any new referrals, to allow us to focus on providing our service to the children and young people who have already been referred to us.  

All children and young people who have already had a referral accepted by our service, will receive therapeutic support as planned. We are aiming to start accepting new referrals into our service in Autumn 2024, most likely mid-September 2024. 

In the meantime, we will be working on our referral pathways to make them as straightforward as possible. We will be sharing more information with you and keep you updated on re-opening dates of the service.  

Please note that we will only be able to accept referrals for children aged 7 and over going forward.  

Thank you and we are looking forward to working with you in the future.  

Please note: West Sussex Drug and Alcohol Wellbeing Network (DAWN) Service is continuing to welcome any new referrals for adults, young people and families needing support with their drug and/or alcohol use. Access more information and their referral form.
