The Hythe Community Primary School is the lead provider for the borough’s Family Centres, working with families with children aged 0–11 who would benefit from specialist support.

In Runnymede, the hub site is at the Hythe School and there is a satellite venue at Addlestone Young People and Family Centre.

The Runnymede Family Centre works closely with other services and partners that support families, to make sure that they get the support they need, when they need it. The aim of this support is to help families build their own resilience and self-reliance.

The support we can offer at the Family Centre is provided by trained staff who understand the challenges families face, and our aim is to help them to find solutions to some of the parenting and relationship difficulties, and grow in confidence to manage issues they might face in the future. Some of this support is provided one to one in family’s homes by outreach workers, and some is offered in groups, where support can come from other families experiencing similar issues.

Requests for support can come from other professionals who have contact with families, for example Health Visitors, GPs, schools and early years settings and these referrals may come to the Family Centre through the Early Help Hub.  We will make contact with families once they have agreed that they would welcome some extra support.

Families can also access us directly if they feel they would like some extra support. We offer parenting programmes and some group activities for some families with common issues to come together.
