Post Order Support Service

Post adoption and guardianship order support service

About Us

We are a multi-disciplinary team providing a dedicated service to children and young people aged 0-18 years who are subject to either an adoption or special guardianship order. Children and young people who have been placed in Surrey by another local Authority or an Adoption Agency can access our services after three years of the adoption or special guardianship order having been issued. We also offer support and guidance to adoptive parent(s) and special guardians as well as the professional network that may be supporting them.





How we can help you

We offer therapeutic assistance to children, young people, adoptive parents, guardians and the professional networks to reduce distress, increase resilience and attend to mental health problems that can get in the way of a child or young person’s ongoing healthy development.


We provide:

  • Time to think and plan with parents, guardians and multiagency networks about problematic behaviours and family situations that are having an adverse impact upon children, young people and their families
  • Comprehensive assessments of therapeutic need that address presenting mental health problems and difficulties
  • A range of therapies and support for children, young people and their families
  • Provide specialist advice, consultation and training for professionals, parents and guardians involved in the care of children and young people. An easy read version of this service leaflet is available by clicking here.

How to access our service

We accept referrals from health, social care or education practitioners such as a GP or teacher. This ensures that every child or young person referred is in contact with the right service and receives appropriate treatment and support. Please contact your GP, teacher or social care worker to get a child or young person a referral to our service. More information is available on our 'Making a referral' web page.


If you have any questions about a child or young person’s mental health, call CAMHS One Stop for advice on 0300 222 5755.
