Service Eligibility

With limited physical, financial and human resources, the JBF has basic criteria for referral and acceptance of any family or case.

We generally cater to families who have a child up to the age of 16.

Priority is given to families at crisis point who have little or no other support.

We liaise with the Social Work Department at the Wendy Fitzwilliam Paediatric Hospital to help us identify and qualify families.

We also get referrals from the attending consultants either at Mount Hope Hospital, The Brian Lara Cancer Treatment Centre or the Radiotherapy Centre at St. James.
