Family Information Service Outreach

Our Outreach service provide information and support to parents/carers and professionals across the county. Each Outreach Officer has their own designated section of Surrey where they give talks, answer queries and offer help.

Support for parents and carers

You can talk to your local Outreach Officer about a number of topics including:

  • finding childcare
  • returning to work
  • financial help for families
  • school admissions
  • services and support organisations for special educational needs and disabilities
  • support finding childcare for a child with a special education need or disability

Their local knowledge means that you can discuss a number of subjects and they will be able to signpost to the most appropriate service or organisation for help, advice and referrals.

Where can you meet your Outreach Officer

Outreach Officers are available at a number of local venues such as:

  • postnatal groups
  • toddler groups
  • children's centres
  • school open days/evenings
  • libraries
  • parent support groups
  • baby weigh clinics
  • food banks
  • young parents' groups
  • events run by other organisations

Support for professionals working with families

If you are a professional or organisation working with families our Outreach Officers are keen to work with you. They would welcome the opportunity to speak to your team at a team or area meeting to talk about how our service can help you and the families you work with.

They can talk through how we can promote your group, service, organisation or events using our Family Information Directory.
