Our work with children and families includes both emotional and practical support. We know that a holistic approach towards a family’s struggles is the most successful in helping them to move forward in their lives and work towards a better future. At our East Surrey centre we offer some practical support services that can help families get back on their feet, become more independent and improve parents’ understanding of how they can impact upon their children’s future.
We have a small food store at our East Surrey centre for families in the greatest need. Please contact our reception on 01737 780884 to book an appointment with a worker during Workers’ Surgery to arrange receiving items from the food store.
We run a number of cookery courses throughout the year, helping parents develop their skills in the kitchen to prepare healthy meals for their children and family to enjoy on a budget. Please see our current programme to find out when our next cookery course is running.
We know how much of an impact financial struggles can have on all aspects of family life. Our workers can help you better plan your family’s budget, access debt advice and understand your benefits entitlement. To make an appointment to meet with a worker call us between 9.30am and 4pm on Monday to Friday on 01737 780 884.
We also host courses which help parents and carers identify their skills, experience and qualities to help write, or improve, their CV and job prospects. Please see our current programme to find out when this course is next running.
