Welcome to Welcare Family Centre
Welcare in East Surrey aims to support families build resilience through safe, nurturing relationships that enhance emotional health and wellbeing and enable children to thrive.
We provide a welcoming and caring environment where staff work together with families and co-ordinate support working together with everyone who supports children, young people, and their families across a range of community support service.
The Welcare Family Centre in Redhill is run by Welcare on behalf of Surrey County Council and provides one-to-one family support and parenting programmes and focusses its resources on helping the families most in need of support. In addition to the Redhill Family Centre we work in partnership with YMCA East Surrey to provide Early Help for 0-19 year olds across the borough of Reigate and Banstead. We also deliver a range of practical and emotional support for children and families throughout East Surrey including weekly groups and the Families & Schools Together programme (FAST).
Welcare Family Centre
Welcare Family Centre in Redhill is one of four Family Centres working in partnership covering the borough of Reigate and Banstead to support the most vulnerable families with children aged 0-11. Our partner providers are YMCA Horley Family Centre, Epsom Downs Primary School and Furzefield Primary (Red Oak).

Early Help Programme for 0-19 year olds
Helping Families Early and as soon as a problem emerges is one of the ways Welcare works with local partners to help children and families who need a little extra support.
The Early Help programme is for children and young people who fall into the category of Level 2 (Early Help) – see Effective Family Resilience Surrey document.
Welcare working with the YMCA (who are the lead provider) has been commissioned to deliver Early Help support to children and young people aged 0-19 years old. This service will respond to need through referrals from Surrey County Council Children’s Single Point of Access (C-SPA), schools, agencies, health, CAMHS, parents and self-referrals from young people.
The family and/or child will be assigned a Welcare or YMCA case worker, who will support them fill out a Child and Family Assessment or Early Help Assessment if this has not already been completed.
If you are unsure which level the family need or would like to discuss the case further before making a referral please ring Catharine Adjei, Centre Manager on 01737 780 884.
If you would like to refer a family to our Level 2 services please complete our Family Early Help Referral Form YMCA East Surrey and Welcare and email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
