Ashley Park House
42-50 Hersham Road
The north east area covers the following three districts and their areas:
- Elmbridge - Esher, Walton on Thames and Weybridge
- Epsom and Ewell - Epsom, Ewell and part of both Stoneleigh and Worcester Park
- Spelthorne - Ashford, Laleham, Shepperton, Staines-upon-Thames, Stanwell and Sunbury on Thames
The north east office is based in Walton on Thames, just ten minutes away by car from the A3 and M25 and ten minutes' walk from Walton train station. It's therefore easily accessible by both car and train from London and the Home Counties.
Ashley Park House was opened to SCC Autumn 2019 as part of an effort to move closer to the residents we serve. The office was refurbished and features a mix of workspaces including 'privacy booths' for sensitive phone calls and private working. The office is on Hersham Road which features a number of amenities and food outlets.
The following are located here with us, promoting a supportive, communicative and friendly atmosphere:
- Surrey Children's Services Academy (SCSA)
- Looked After Children's team
- Family Safeguarding Team
- Assessment Team
- Children with Disabilities Team
Juliette Blake - Assistant Director Family Resilience and Safeguarding
"It's really important to me that all colleagues feel safe, secure, trusted, supported and listened to. It's vital that we have positive relationships with each other to enable us to do our best each day.
At the North East Quadrant at Surrey Children's Services, we have been benefitting from our move to Walton on Thames and a more agile way of working. Not only are we closer to the families we work with, but our approach means we are able to spend more quality time working in a meaningful, strength-based way with children and families and less time travelling.
Our new modern and colourful office is a pleasure to work in and we have been implementing new ways of working, that other local authorities are now emulating.
We also welcome everyone and see the true value in diversity and how it enriches our practice. I would encourage you to come and join our team."
