Making a referral

For individuals

We accept referrals from individuals.  If you want to self-refer please Get in touch with our team>>.

For professionals

The following forms should only be completed by a professional. These are NOT FOR SELF-REFERRAL. Please consult the guidance below, and if you have any questions, contact us at bridges@jigsawhomes.org.uk.

To refer a victim/survivor of domestic abuse to us for support:

Complete the Safelives DASH risk assessment. If any of the criteria for a referral to MARAC are met (set out in the guidelines at the start of the DASH questions), then the remainder of a MARAC referral must be completed and uploaded to SharePoint (you should have a lead/designated officer with access to SharePoint, but if not please email the referral form to Tameside.CMT@gmp.police.uk . The referral is then be allocated to a Bridges IDVA.

If none of the MARAC criteria is met, but support is required to complete the remainder of the Bridges referral. Section 5 needs to be completed if applying for refuge accommodation at Ruffley House. Please email the completed referral to bridges@jigsawhomes.org.uk. If you are solely applying for Refuge accommodation, please ring 0161 339 8755 or 0800 328 0967 to see who the referral should be sent to.

Any case without a completed DASH will likely be returned for completion – this can result in a delay in any support being offered to a client/family.
