Age UK Surrey
Age UK Surrey aims to:
- promote the wellbeing of older people in Surrey
- improve public awareness of issues concerning ageing
- influence public policy to meet the needs of older people
- work with other agencies in the provision of relevant services for older people
If you have the time - however little - there are so many ways in which you can help.
The rewards are great. You will use your skills, meet new people, have fun and find it very, very rewarding. You can be sure that the time you give is making a positive difference to older people in the community.
Cancer Research UK, Downing Street, Farnham Shop
Our main purpose is simple: to save lives by preventing, controlling and curing cancer. We do this through our world-class research into over 200 types of cancer, all of which is entirely funded by our supporters.
We fund over 4,000 scientists, doctors and nurses across the UK who are working tirelessly to find new and better ways to beat cancer.
We don't just do research - every year we help millions of people by providing information for patients, health professionals and the public.
We push hard for positive changes in public policy and legislation, helping to keep cancer at the top of the health agenda and bring benefit to cancer patients.
We tell the world what's going on through a wide range of publications - from simple leaflets on prevention and detection to our Annual Review.
Each area of our work is making a real difference. As a direct result of your support and our research, more people are beating cancer than ever before - survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years.
We have around 550 charity shops across the UK and they play a vital role in raising funds and awareness for our cause.
As a shop volunteer you are among the most visible faces of the charity and contribute hugely to how the public perceive us and the work we do.
Compassion in World Farming
Emerge is a Christian based charity that supports young people who are struggling with self-harm or feeling suicidal and have found themselves at A&E in Guildford as a result. We are youth workers who will be there for young people in crisis late in the evening and also during (often intense) multi-disciplinary professionals meeting during the day.
We make tea, help people breathe through panic attacks, make mind maps and listen, listen, listen.
We seek to be a voice of hope, even in the bleakest of situations.

Roots for the Future (Godalming)
Rowleys Centre for the Community Cranleigh
Rowleys Centre for the Community is situated in the heart of the centre of Cranleigh. We pride ourselves on being a community venue offering many additional advantages to the local community beyond the purpose for which it was initially intended. Providing high quality services to maintain and improve the health and wellbeing of our local community is at the heart of what we do.
Rowleys primarily offers a place for the older population to socialise, keep physically active, stay connected and acquire new skills, which has a positive impact on their overall health and wellbeing and supports reducing social isolation.
Whilst our main aim is to promote the wellbeing of all older people and assist them in making later life a fulfilling and enjoyable experience we would like to ensure the Community Centre is open to all and available for other groups to utilise outside of the core offer.
