What We Do
The Belong Community Project is an exciting new project delivering services to the community which complement and enhance the local Early Help offer and demands.
Belong will deliver early intervention and prevention services which meet locally identified needs and opportunities for children, young people and their families in Dorking and the surrounding areas.
- To develop, facilitate, seek funding for and deliver new proactive and reactive provision that has been identified by the local Family Partnership as a gap in local services to children, young people and their families.
- To work in partnership with existing local and Surrey wide partners to ensure that our local Early Help offer is the best possible support to children, young people and their families.
- To identify and respond to long term and newly identified local need through listening to and valuing the voices of those who we are aiming to support.
- To improve the lives and opportunities of children, young people and their families through sustainable provision of relevant services.
