Surrey Early Help Offer
As part of the development of Surrey's Early Help offer, they are building a Hub which is intended to become a go-to resource to help parents looking for additional information about how to support their children. They are starting small and initially just focusing on behaviour but the intention is that this builds to be much more comprehensive in terms of what it offers.

Surrey’s Family Help Hub
Have you ever wondered why your child is behaving a certain way? Is that behaviour typical? What could be causing it? Is something wrong? These are common worries for everyone looking after babies, toddlers, children and teenagers. Surrey's Family Help Hub; developed by Surrey County Council and partners, is a site with a difference. You can search for information you need based on your child’s age and find advice, tips and tools from a variety of trusted sources all in one place.
This service has been live for just over a month and some design changes have already been made, based on feedback received so far. The team developing this are still looking for feedback to further develop the site in the coming months, so take a look and send your feedback let us know what you think.
