Time for Kids

Who is Time for Kids for?

Time for Kids is relevant for anyone working with children, young people and families in Surrey – whether you're a social worker, teacher, health professional, police officer, youth group leader, volunteer or charity professional.

The more people who adopt the Time for Kids principles, the closer we get to providing a holistic, supportive and consistent service for every child in the system.

Whether you're a senior executive or a front-line worker, Time for Kids is for you. All it requires is someone with a passion to make a difference for children and young people across their organisation.

Launch of Surrey Police Serious and Organised Crime Campaign - July 2020

Serious and organised crime is often glamourised in quirky TV dramas with an anti-hero we love to love. In actual fact, serious and organised crime gangs affect more of us more often than any other threat. That is because they target all of us through their trafficking of drugs, of people, fraud, theft and much more.

Surrey Police has launched a campaign called 'See the Bigger picture'. The campaign will be showing you about how these groups target people and how you can help smash them to smithereens.

If you have any information which could help, please direct message Surrey Police, or report online using web chat or their report a crime form.

If you do not wish to leave your name, please call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
