About AKIN

AKIN is a grass roots community support network, run by parents for parents in the Guildford area.

Our aim: Helping families to support young people's emotional wellbeing and mental health.

Our Mission Statement: Support the family, support the child.

A child's emotional wellbeing and mental health can impact the whole family. We create opportunities for parents to meet others who are going through the same challenging experiences and hold events that enable families to gain a better understanding of a child's needs. Through activities such as discussions, workshops, presentations and professional talks, we inspire and empower families to play an important part in their child's recovery.

Get in touch with us at info@akingroup.org.uk or join our mailing list to hear about our forthcoming events.
