Initial Assessment and Referrals

The inter-agency referral form can be emailed to central.duty@kent.gov.uk; (if you have a licenced Egress Switch account we suggest you use that). You will still need to subsequently post or fax a signed copy of the form in the usual way. If the form is completed in writing it should be faxed to the Central Duty Team on 03000 41 23 45.
