Welcome to Comcare’s Single Point of Entry (Referral/Inquiry/ Introduction) process (SPOE)

We have improved and streamlined how people can contact us with a referral or inquiry about our services. Now all referrals to Comcare services

 can be made via our new ‘Generic Referral Form’ (except for a Community Support Worker – through the Community Access Pathway – CAP below).


Simply complete this form and submit.


All referrals will be processed by our Triage team and our Triage Practitioner will assist with navigation, both within Comcare and the wider sector.
If you have any queries or wish to discuss a potential referral, please don’t hesitate to contact us: 0800 377 702


For CAP referral use the this PDF form:  Community Support Worker Referral 


Comcare works with approximately 1,200 adults at any one time across a range of mental health and addiction support services.

Access to Comcare’s services is generally by referral from Canterbury District Health Board (CDHB) Specialist Mental Health Teams, General Practice (GPs), or other NGO mental health or addiction service providers. Some services offer self-referral options (Jobconnect, Peer Support and Activelinks).

If you wish to refer a person to one of our services, please use the appropriate Referral Form or Contact Us for more information.
