Making a positive difference to all families

There are four Family Centres that cover the borough of Reigate & Banstead.  These centres 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 are a ‘one-stop shop’ for families with children aged 0-11 years old.

We have a team of family support workers who offer families individual packages of care whether at home or in the centre providing support and guidance in a range of areas, including parenting, special educational needs, behaviour, education, mental health and much more.

The family centre is a one stop shop for local families to get advice and support.  The centre offers a variety of groups and activities for families; including a baby group, play sessions for parents and carers of children with additional needs, a speech and language communication group, 1-2-1 parenting sessions, parenting courses and child health and development support.  We also 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.
