Surrey’s Local Offer team, Family Voice Surrey and Surrey County Council have collaborated on a visual guide to Children’s Services in Surrey.

This document has been created to raise awareness and understanding of what support is available from Children’s Services, in a quick and easy to understand way.

‘At Family Voice Surrey, we have often heard from parent/carers that they need an easy way to understand the support offered by children’s services in Surrey. We wanted a quick guide that everyone could read and easily understand. We contacted Surrey County Council’s Local Offer team to propose this, and they immediately agreed that it would be a good idea. As the work progressed it became obvious, we would need other staff at Surrey County Council to help us. I am delighted with what we have produced, and we hope you find it helpful’

This collaborative working helped the document to evolve; after initial meetings, simplifying the wording and length. A draft version was reviewed by parent/carers at Family Voice Surrey and their extremely helpful comments were incorporated into the final document.

If you feel the support described in the document isn’t applicable to your families circumstances and you feel you ‘fall through the gaps of the support available’ then please let us know by contacting:
