The Family Centres are located as follows:-
Guildford Family Centre works across the whole Guildford Borough, providing support and guidance to families with children aged 0-11 years. Our aim is to help families find solutions to the parenting and relationship challenges they face and to grow in confidence to manage future difficulties.
We offer groups (a SEND playgroup for pre-schoolers, a non-mobile baby group) and free courses (eg on parenting, developing your child’s language and communication, adjusting to having a baby, surviving domestic abuse) as well as family and SEND advice sessions on the phone.
We also have a team of incredible Family Support Workers who work one-to-one with families when personal circumstances are having a negative impact on the health, development or wellbeing of the child/children. By encouraging families to get the specialist help they may need, referring them to the right people, and signposting them to useful resources, we support parents to take positive steps towards a happy, more secure family life.
