Surrey Well-Being Partnership:

The Surrey Well-being Partnership (a group of voluntary sector organisations working together to help improve the well-being of Surrey children, young people and families) is working together with the NHS to empower parents to meet the emotional needs of children, young people and families during the pandemic. We have teamed up with Dr Kathryn Hollins of Surrey & Borders Partnership Trust. Kathryn is our local expert - she is a Consultant Parent, Child and Family Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist, specialising in parenthood, pregnancy and family relationships. 

Feedback from schools and charity colleagues has been that parents are actively seeking support so that they can more effectively support their children during COVID. In response, we have developed a Facebook page where we are offering parents an opportunity to focus on what really matters for their children right now. Each week Dr Kathryn Hollins will be sharing ideas and tips on how to meet the emotional and developmental needs of our children during this difficult time. Being supported as parents is key to children’s health and well-being. More than ever, it is crucial for parents to meet their own needs, so that they are able to meet the needs of their children. These postings for parents are our way of reaching out to the families of Surrey to say ‘you are not alone’, we can all support each other in getting through the pandemic together.

Please click HERE to access the new Facebook page. This page will be regularly updated with new tips and advice. Please do take the time to have a look.
