Children and Family Health Surrey has dedicated Safeguarding and Looked after Children teams. Their aim is to work effectively with families, children and partner agencies to ensure the appropriate course of action is taken whenever there is cause to be concerned about a child.
Children and Family Health Surrey service is committed to the promotion of children’s welfare and supports a culture that gives our employees, volunteers and anyone contracted to work with us the confidence and skills to raise concerns.
