Making a referral to The Arches
We aim to complement existing practical provision across Nottingham
We take referrals from a range of organisations across our city. Our aim is to meet people’s urgent practical needs for furniture and household items and then invite visitors back to The Arches community groups where they can find friendship and support. We accept referrals for those in an emergency situation and financial hardship, whether it’s setting up home for the first time or starting again after a relationship breakdown, domestic violence or fire.
How to make a referral
A referral can be made by a support worker or other professional who knows the visitor’s situation. We do not accept self-referrals. To make a referral please request a referral form by completing the online enquiries form below.
What happens next?
Once you’ve referred a visitor to us, please ask them to come along to one of our drop-in sessions at The Arches on a Thursday or Saturday morning at 10.00am, bringing a paper copy of the completed referral form with them. We don’t contact visitors before this time. You’re welcome to come along. You can also arrange an appointment to come with your visitor on a Tuesday morning by calling us during opening hours.
