Support for young people and their families

There is a range of help and support available for young people and their families in Surrey.

Have your say

You have the right to be listened to when decisions are being made about you, and to be treated fairly. The people around you should ask what you think and involve you in making decisions about yourself. Your social worker and your Independent Reviewing Officer (IRO) have special responsibility to ask you about your wishes and feelings.

What if you are not happy with the way you're being cared for?

Try and tell someone if you are not happy. You have a right to be listened to and you should tell your social worker or talk to someone else who you trust - like a teacher, independent visitor or member of your family.

You can also contact the Children's Rights Team to talk about whether you want to make a complaint and whether you want an advocate to support you with that. The Children's Rights team can also explain how an advocate can help you.
