Family support team

The Family Support Team is one of the routes of Surrey’s Early Help offer, which brings agencies and professionals together, meaning that a family can access support services through a single coordinated family plan.

The South East Team - covering Mole Valley District, Reigate and Banstead Borough and Tandridge District - is part of the Surrey-wide approach to the Government's Supporting Families Programme. We are based in the offices of each of the three Councils which work together to deliver the programme. 

A wide-range of services and agencies work together as part of the Family Support Team. There is strong evidence that shows that, by co-ordinating efforts with partners, outcomes for families can be improved. It allows us to pool our resources, be more cost efficient and provide more timely, helpful and appropriate services to families.
