Making a positive difference to all families

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

The Red Oak Family Centre is located on the site of Furzefield Primary School, at the heart of the Merstham community and we offer support for families with children aged 0-11 years old.

Our main role at The Family Centre is to Help Families Early and support families with children aged 0-11 years old, to help improve certain areas of their lives. We have a team of specialised Family Support Workers who work directly with families.  We build individual packages of care, whether at home or in the centre, to provide support and guidance for families in a variety of areas, including parenting, special educational needs, behaviour, education, mental health and much more.

The family centre is also open for families to get advice and information and we offer a selection of groups, courses and activities for families.   These include parenting courses, workshops and 1-2-1 sessions in addition to play sessions for children with additional needs, a speech and language communication group, a parent and baby group and child health and development support.   We run specific programmes for children, designed to develop children’s communication, speech and language and also a love of stories, books and rhymes.  These are all delivered through fun play-based sessions.

If you would like to find out more information on any of our services and what we offer, please contact the family centre on 01737 645908 or email

We are open Monday-Friday 8.30am – 4.30pm
