First Contact Plus
First Contact Plus enables the county council, district and borough councils, NHS, emergency services, voluntary sector and many other agencies to work together to ensure vulnerable adults, across Leicestershire are receiving appropriate support.
Colleagues from these partner organisations frequently come into contact with vulnerable adults, either during home visits, telephone calls or work with them in other settings. When working with a vulnerable adult, they offer to make a referral to First Contact Plus for support with a wide range of issues including; improving your health, falls prevention, families & relationships, money, debt & benefits, your home, feeling safe, living independently and work, learning and volunteering.
First Contact Plus has also launched the option of self-referral via its website, enabling a quick and efficient way access to Leicestershire’s prevention offer.
First Contact Plus is a key part of our vision that by 2018 we will have a comprehensive offer for community based prevention for Leicestershire residents.
