Guidelines for referring organisation for completing the companion Application Form
We would ask you to complete this application form with the potential companion (applicant). Please ensure that they have signed the declaration consenting to your providing us with the information.
The purpose of the form is for all of us involved to make as thorough an assessment as possible of the needs of the applicant and whether there will be sufficient support available at Emmaus Glasgow to meet them.
Emmaus Glasgow does not receive Supported People funding and does not have a large team of staff to meet complex needs.

|2||Physical and mental health issuesAs detailed as possible, including current treatment/medication.|
|3.||Offending / ViolenceDetails of any convictions and whether the applicant is on any register. This should also include any violent behaviour that has not led to a conviction.|
