Keeping Teesside Connected
This service will support adults, children and families affected by disability, autism and mental health in Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland and Stockton on Tees until March 2021.
We can offer support
Redcar and Cleveland Council has a support service in place for children who are subject to a Special Guardianship Order (SGO).
An SGO may be granted when a child cannot live with their parents, and instead parental responsibility is given to another person that is close to them (often a grandparent or other extended relative). Sometimes these carers are called kinship carers.
The SGO Team are available to offer support directly to children where needed, and advice and guidance to carers.
If you have an SGO or are a kinship carer and feel that you would benefit from this service, please contact Sarah Gunn at KTS who is able to make a referral.
If you want to support your child at home, here are some websites which you may find useful.

We are promoting Safe Internet Use and teaching our pupils how to be safe online. Click on the logo below for guidance to help your child at home.
With children spending more time on the internet during lockdown, it's more important than ever for parents and carers and their children to know the best reporting and support routes, should they be worried about something online.
National Online Safety have created a free online safety guide for schools to share with parents and carers about Kik Messenger; a free messaging app aimed at users aged thirteen and over. Used by more than 300 million people worldwide, Kik lets users exchange messages, photos, videos, GIFs and web pages with friends, family, chatbots and even strangers.
Unlike WhatsApp, Kik doesn’t require a user to sign up with a phone number. Instead, friends can be added via their username, making it easier for users to receive unwanted contact from strangers. Police in the UK issued a safety warning earlier in the year, claiming that Kik has featured in ‘more than 1,100 child sexual abuse cases in the last five years’ and that ‘children are at risk’ on the app.
