A message from all of us at The Red Oak Family Centre- Updated 5th November 2020

Due to the current national lockdown we are not able to run our drop in advice and information mornings on Tuesday and Thursdays, however all staff are still working and available via telephone and email if you have any questions or queries you would like assistance with. Please contact us on 01737 645908 or We hope to be able to restart these sessions again from 3rd December, subject to government guidance.

If you require Healthy Start vitamins, these can still be purchased from the Family Centre. Please ring us in advance to arrange collection and bring the correct change (£2 for babies/ children’s drops and £1 tablets for Mums) We also accept healthy start vouchers.

Our team of Family Support Workers remain very busy supporting families and delivering parenting support.

The current lockdown has impacted on our planned reintroduction of certain groups that we are commissioned to provide including our speech and language course and parenting support courses but we hope to be able to reintroduce these in early 2021, subject to the latest government guidance.

We will continue to update and share information on our Facebook page that will benefit your family so please take a look!

We hope you stay safe and well and look forward to seeing you again soon.

The Red Oak Family Centre

There are four Family Centres that cover the borough of Reigate & Banstead. These Centres are based in Merstham, Redhill, Horley & Epsom Downs.

We are located on the site of Furzefield Primary school, at the heart of the Merstham community and are a ‘one-stop shop’ for children under 11 and their families. We provide advice, information, support, courses, activities and more. We also have an onsite preschool.

Please send us your feedback on any activities or groups you have attended at the Family Centre, as this will help us make sure we’re providing the right services as well as where we need to improve.
