We want to build on your resilience as a family and empower you to be self-reliant. Once your family is referred to us, you will be allocated a dedicated Family Support Worker who will carry out work we agree with you.

This could be on a 1:1 basis to support the needs of your family in the home and community. Once a family’s support needs are identified, there are a range of things we can do to make a difference.  

  • We visit children in their schools and community.  

  • Visiting families in their homes and in the community.  

  • Working together with other partners to make sure you and your children are supported

  • We provide a range of parenting classes/courses through groups, sessions in Surrey.

I strongly recommend because I personally received a lot of help and tips and support.

Whether you are seeking emotional and mental health help or support for all the family, we are here to support you. 

Looking for child behavioural advice, support with children’s mental health or parent and toddler groups in Surrey? We do it together, because we believe that all children should have the support they need to thrive. 

If your family have not been referred to us, then we can still support you!

Read Tara's story

“Tara* had fled domestic abuse with her three children; Kerys* who was eight, Dom* aged five, and baby Liam*. Kerys was at a school who reported she was doing really well, so Tara was delighted when Dom was offered a place there too. She hoped that it would give him the stability he so desperately needed after all they had been through.
