If you are working with a young person (aged 11-18) in Sheffield who you think would benefit from some extra support from our team and the projects we run, you can refer them to our services.  

How?

To do this you’ll need to download our referral form and complete it in full, including the final section which is to be completed by the young person you are referring. Please return completed forms to:

The Golddigger Trust Centre for Young People,
10 Psalter Lane,
Sheffield,
S11 8YN

or referrals@golddiggertrust.co.uk

What happens next? 

If the information provided shows the young person meets our criteria, then our team will invite the young person (and if appropriate, a parent/carer) to have an initial chat with one of our youth workers. During this session they will explain the support that Golddigger Trust can offer, and discuss the next steps with them.  We aim to contact the young person/family member within 2 weeks with an opportunity to book in an initial chat (this is often delayed by not being able to get through over the phone, so please do include an email address where possible). We aim to offer appointment slots for initial chats throughout the week, with slots available within 14 days if preferred. We will also acknowledge our receipt of your referral to you as the referrer via email.

Young people’s engagement in our support is voluntary and your support in this transition to our service is really helpful. We have found that the most successful route to engagement is through referrer’s ongoing support, so where possible, please continue your involvement at least during this process.

Please note that Golddigger Trust’s work focuses on supporting young people’s holistic wellbeing and that we are not a replacement for a referral to specialist or clinical services if such support is deemed necessary. We are very happy to contribute to a multi-agency approach to support, and are unable to provide crisis or case management care.

Provision will most likely be offered at the Golddigger Trust Centre for Young People which is walking distance from both Abbeydale Rd and Ecclesall Road (both major bus routes), and 1 mile from Sheffield City Centre (The Moor Market). If accessibility to this venue is a problem please contact us to discuss the possibility of booking our team to come out to deliver our projects in your school or youth work setting (across South Yorkshire) instead. 

Golddigger Trust is a registered charity and our services are currently supported by voluntary donations and grants. Whilst we work in partnership with statutory agencies, we are not currently funded by these sources, and so we are always grateful to those who are able to fundraise or donate to keep our valuable services open and free at the point of use for young people.
