Referrals into the Service

Children in North Cork are referred to a central intake forum which meets once a month.

Representatives from the disability services, in North Cork, attend this forum meeting and a decision is made by the attendees as to which team best meets the child’s needs.

If it is considered that St. Josephs Foundation is the best fit for your child’s needs then you will receive notification from the forum after the meeting. You will then be be contacted by St. Josephs.

Children from South Limerick 

Referrals from South Limerick are received directly by St. Joseph’s Foundation from sources such as maternity hospitals, GPs , Public Health Nurses and directly from individual children’s parents. Once a referral has been received you will be contacted by St. Josephs.

On occasion St. Joseph's may require more information on a referral and may revert back to original referrer.
