Community Wellbeing Team (CWT)

What we do

Barnardo’s Community Wellbeing Team works across Surrey Heath, Spelthorne, Waverley & Woking. We work with children and young people, aged 6-18 years, to help support emotional health and wellbeing as soon as a need is identified.

The Community Wellbeing Team provides support in the following ways:
Meeting with them for 1:1 support (up to 10 sessions)
B-Connected - a 6 week school-based wellbeing group
Advice, guidance, information and signposting to other provisions
Offering phone or online support
Finding other support in the local community
Holiday wellbeing check-in sessions

Community Wellbeing Mentors will spend time getting to know the young person and what goals they want for future sessions. The service uses a goal-based approach to guide young people to understand their strengths and how they can use them to achieve their goals. Community Wellbeing Mentors will meet young people where they feel safe and comfortable which can be at home, in school/college or out in the local community.

Referrals can be made via:
Mindworks Surrey Access and Advice Service (formerly CAMHS access and advice service)
Professionals working with the young people such as GP, education, social care
Young people (aged 16 and over), parents or carers themselves
