CHARITY TRUSTEES NEEDED
Cherry Trees (East Clandon)
Cherry Trees aims to be a model of excellence in respite care for children and young adults with physical and mental disabilities.
Cherry Trees aims to provide a high quality service of respite care to children in a relaxed and caring setting.
We believe that every child is an individual with the right to enjoy a normal pattern of life within the community, appropriate to his/her age.
Although we support individual learning programmes for each child and follow through with all programmes that are being implemented at home or school, we do not provide a structured educational system as we believe we are a “home from home” where children can relax and play.
We advocate respect, dignity, freedom of choice and privacy for each child. We believe in the principle of Child First, Disability Second.
We respect and acknowledge the role of parents/carers and the challenges they face in nurturing the potential in the child or young adult in their care.
Citizens Advice Surrey
Citizens Advice Bureaux in Surrey have been exploring ways to coordinate our activities and enhance our service delivery and performance. It was agreed that forming a company limited by guarantee would be the best way forward. So, Citizens Advice Surrey, made up of twelve bureaux, was registered as a charity in June 2011.
Our new structure builds on an already strong relationship among Surrey CAB managers. Through a managers’ forum, Surrey CAB managers have for many years shared information and mutual support to enable them to develop services that address local and county needs, and to develop effective partnerships with other voluntary and statutory organisations.
Crossroads Care Surrey
Crossroads Care is Surrey's leading charity providing respite care support to Carers. We've been working across Surrey for over 30 years, with our core purpose being to improve the quality of life of unpaid carers and those they are caring for.
COVID-19 Emergency Response
As a result of Coronavirus, Crossroads swiftly implemented a response by providing essential shopping and prescription collection services to carers and to other vulnerable people that were isolated at home. We provided regular wellbeing calls to check in on people to see how they were coping and to offer support with shopping. We're now developing a volunteer based Outreach Support and Telephone Befriending with Digital Tech project largely in response to Covid, but which enable us to continue to support people who need it with shopping and prescription collections, and also with support in learning and using digital technology. We are seeking new volunteers who are interested in providing Outreach Support and / or Telephone or Digital Befriending.
As an Outreach Support Volunteer you would support people living in the same borough as yourself with shopping and prescription collections. We would provide you with appropriate PPE and pay any related fuel costs.
As a Befriender you would support carers and other older people, or those being cared for, who are feeling isolated and alone and who would benefit from having someone to speak to simply to chat about life, the weather, local services and events etc. We're interested in hearing from volunteers who are relatively IT savvy and would be able to connect to our Cloud based phone system to make telephone or virtual calls to clients. We'd also like volunteers to get involved with an exciting new Befriending with digital tech project, through which you would be able to support people in learning to use, or building confidence in using laptops, smart phones and tablets. Even if you're not computer savvy, but would benefit from being a befriender yourself, please get in touch.
We're also looking for new Trustee's to join us now, so if you're interested in supporting us in leading the development of respite services for carers in Surrey, please enquire through our website www.crossroadscaresurrey.org.uk
We are also always looking for people that are interested in other volunteering roles, including by offering support in care or club settings, in the community or in the head office.
If you are interested in becoming part of our Surrey wide team and being involved in providing support to your community, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a volunteer pack.
We'd love to hear from you... if you have a good understanding of what it's like to be a carer and are looking to give something back through volunteering.

Guildford Mukono Link
The Guildford Mukono (Uganda) Link was established in 2003 to foster an understanding between the communities of Guildford and Mukono. It is through friendship that we have found many ways of working together.
In Guildford, there are 10 Linked schools, Surrey University and individuals are involved in various projects. Some initiatives have arisen because a need has been identified, others have resulted from spontaneous ideas from chance meetings. All are based on respect for each other’s culture and institutions.
We have an active committee of 10 people and have 200 supporters. There are regular visits to Mukono and reciprocal visits to Guildford.
Guildford Sea Cadets
We are a very well established Sea Cadet unit that has been in operation since 1942. We were recognised in 2010 as one of the best units in the southern area. This is not only because of our central location, right in the heart of Guildford, but because of our ethos and commitment to provide top notch activities for young people.
Our superb location, perched on the banks of the River Wey near the National Trust's Dapdune Wharf, is so close to the water that you can touch it. And this fits well with our aim; to give young people the opportunity to get out onto the water, gain confidence and have a lot of laughs at the same time.
We want to keep our cadets active both on an off the water. Long evenings in the Summer months mean loads of time on the water: Kayaking, sailing, rowing and driving power boats. Then when the nights draw cold and you think that all we can do is in a classroom you find we keep active: rock climbing, leadership games and activities and sports games.
We currently have 65 cadets, male and female aged between 10 and 18, of whom 16 are Royal Marine Cadets.
We have a wide range of facilities and instructional staff which means we can offer you the opportunity to learn new skills in a safe environment whilst having loads of fun!

Marie Curie Nurses are available in every village, town and city throughout the UK, caring for terminally ill patients who wish to die in comfortable and familiar surroundings at home with their families. Last year in Surrey, our nurses worked over 10,000 hours, through the night and day, caring for many local people. This comes at a cost to the charity of £20 for each hour a Marie Curie Nurse is in the home. This is why collections are so important to us.

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.
