Making a Referral

Some Men are referred by agencies, and other men self refer to the MOVE programme. All men fill out an application form and send it to their local MOVE programme. If a man is referring himself, the man can fill out the Move Self Referral Form which can be found  in the link below, or by ringing the number of their local MOVE group. Once the application is received, the man will be asked to come in to his local MOVE programme for an assessment to establish whether the man is suitable for the MOVE programme. If a man is considered suitable for the programme his partner/ ex partner will be contacted by MOVE at this stage so that any questions you have about the programme are answered.

MOVE welcomes referrals from professionals who may be working with family members in a child protection, community care, health  or other context i.e. social workers or other HSE roles, and, similarly within the justice system i.e. Probation Officers and the courts.
