  • Step Ahead Plus Referral Form

    *Items marked are required details
    If you have answered No to any of the above, the person may not be suitable for the service so please contact us to discuss the referral before proceeding. Please Note: Our service is conducted primarily via tele-health (video/phone/email support). Firstly we carry out an initial interview via video call and the person may then be invited for an in-depth face-to-face vocational assessment in one of our 3 centres (Dublin, Cork, or Midlands). If deemed suitable, the person may then be offered vocational rehabilitation via tele-health. The service is not suitable for people with degenerative conditions, with progressive organic disorders or with Alcohol Related Brain Injury. Due to the high demand for this service, priority is given to people who are at risk of leaving work/education or have a job or place of education to return to. Please give details of this to assist with prioritisation.
