Please note the following:

  • That a referral for Time Together will be considered by the EP supervisor for the area and a response as to whether or not it is agreed will then be given to the referrer by letter.
  • It is not an expectation that a Time Together Home Visitor will become the EHA lead professional.  A Home Visitor may choose to attend a TAC meeting if this is felt to be appropriate at a particular time.
  • There is likely to be a waiting list so it may be some time after the referral when home visiting can start.
