The service is accessible to anyone over 18, living in Camden or having a GP in Camden. It is available regardless of eligibility for adult social care services and/or previous contact with mental health services.
The service involves you working 1:1 with a member of our staff or volunteer team over a period of between 6 and 8 sessions. Sessions are usually 1 hour, and can take place at your home, at our community centre, or in a public space (such as a park, or a cafe). Our work is intentionally flexible, but we loosely provide what we call a combination of ‘practical and emotional support’. You may spend the time working on PIP forms, housing, going for a walk, visiting a cafe, speaking about what you are going through at the moment, or something else entirely. It is up to you and your key worker to decide the structure of the sessions, and how you can best use the time in a person-centred way that takes into account who you are and where you are at.
At the end of our time together, we’ll work to help you figure out next steps, and what sort of support you might benefit from if you need further help – within or outside of Likewise.
There are several easy ways to access our 6-8 Session service:
You can also ask your GP or an organisation you’re already in contact with to refer you to our service.
If you would like to make a referral to the 6-8 Session service, either for yourself or someone you know, please fill in the form below. Alternatively you can download our referral form and mail it to us, or call us on 020 7278 4437
Once a referral has been made, one of our team will get back to you within a couple of weeks to confirm what happens next.
Due to the high demand for this service, we currently have a waiting list of approximately 5/6 months. We are currently working hard to reduce this.
We have recently been experiencing problems with online referrals. If you have not heard back from us regarding a recent referral, please call us on 020 7278 4437
