What Happens Next
If you think you might want to join Nehemiah you can ask your keyworker or probation officer to refer you.
To join Nehemiah a man must be referred, using our application form. This can be done as a self-referral, or by an agency worker.
We will send you a risk assessment form to fill out to support all possible interview candidates.
We treat all applications in the strictest confidence, and evaluate all forms using the same criteria.
Anyone can phone our Referrals Coordinator to discuss a referral.
If you want to join Nehemiah, you must fill out an application form. If you find forms hard, you can ask for help. You can download an application form by clicking here, or we can send you a paper one in the post. Phone Paul Da Costa on 020 8773 7417, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The more you tell us in your form, the easier it is for us to decide that you can come to Nehemiah. We will not share your information with anyone outside of Nehemiah.
Assisted Referral : for agencies
Please complete an application form and send to Paul Da Costa, email@example.com, or by post to:
The Nehemiah Project,
47 Tooting Bec Gardens,
We also ask for a risk assessment form. You can send us your own risk assessment form if your agency prefers.
Once we receive an application form, it is assessed by our Housing Team, and a decision is made whether to interview the man. If the applicant does not meet our criteria, we try to let everyone know as soon as possible.
If the applicant can attend interview, it will be held at one of our houses, either in Streatham or Croydon
If the applicant is in prison, two members of our staff can visit to conduct the interview.
A decision will then be made, and the applicant will be informed in the week following the interview. Successful applicants will be invited to join the programme as soon as possible, or will be placed on the waiting list if there is no vacancy. Applicants on the waiting list should keep in touch with Nehemiah until a vacancy arises. Priority is on a strictly first-come-first-served basis.
When attending interview, men will be drug-tested and breathalysed. Anyone testing positive will be asked to leave the premises immediately.
