Change of Scene

Mission Statement

Change of Scene objectives are to make a life changing difference for disadvantaged children. Our attendees, aged 6-18 years from Surrey & Hampshire display a wide range of complex learning, social, emotional and/or behavioural difficulties causing them to be unable to access learning; many have been excluded from schools, are in short term provision, or are currently not on a school role. We work on a 1:1 basis at our 16 acre small holding in a tranquil South Farnham valley giving the children the vital support and attention they need. The children care for a wide range of animals from reptiles to alpacas. They work in the vegetable patch and polytunnel raising plants and harvesting fruit & veg; they milk the goat and make yoghurt and cheese; they do baking, make jams and chutneys; carpentry; extract & bottle honey; gather wood; repair animal houses, fences & hives; and help around the grounds. It is not a jolly day out. They work really hard in all weathers but they do also have times of rest and play.

The children gain strength through nature and an appreciation that their regular input and care makes a worthwhile contribution. The whole experience engenders calm, self-confidence, a belief in a promising future; that they can create positive outcomes for themselves. These experiences and the learning of new skills translate into the children and young people going back into education with a sense of life purpose.

Family Action: National Digital Parenting Support Service

Mission Statement

Families come in all shapes and sizes. No matter how they are constructed, Family Action is committed to supporting them to realise their potential.

All families encounter difficult and challenging times and many will find ways to deal with their problems, getting the support they need from friends and relatives.

There are times, however, when problems can seem too overwhelming to manage.

Family Action works to tackle some of the most complex and difficult issues facing families today – including financial hardship, mental health problems, social isolation, learning disabilities, domestic abuse, or substance misuse and alcohol problems.

 

 

 

These issues can have a huge impact on the stability of family life, and will have a significant impact on the health, wellbeing and development of all family members.

Family Action believes that families facing these difficulties should have the support they need to become stronger, happier and healthier. With the right kind of support, families can overcome their difficulties and find hope for a brighter future.

We work directly with vulnerable children and families through our services and we also support professionals and organisations through our training and consultancy provision.

Guildford Sea Cadets

Mission Statement

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!

Horsley, Bookham & Leatherhead Riding for the Disabled Association is a registered charity which provides facilities to benefit disabled children and young adults by having regular contact with horses.

We have been operating for over 30 years giving rides to children and young adults with physical and learning disabilities in Surrey. Our riders include those with autism, Down's Syndrome, spina bifida and dyspraxia.

Our dedicated team of volunteer coaches, group leaders and helpers is paramount to our continued success, without whom we could not operate. 

We are always looking for volunteers and sponsors, and welcome any contribution which will help keep this wonderful community effort going.

Volunteering Matters

Mission Statement

As a social action charity we believe everyone should have the opportunity to thrive. So we bring people together to overcome some of society’s most complex issues through the power of volunteering.

We partner with communities to overcome adversity, tackle social isolation and loneliness, improve health, develop skills and opportunity and make sure young people can lead change. And because we’re a national charity, we do this at scale, sharing our expertise and building partnerships to make an even bigger impact.

We turn local knowledge and energy into action and progress, building stronger communities and a better future for all.

Westfield Primary School

Mission Statement

We believe in the importance of children engaging, enriching and excelling at school.  This allows them to make the best progress they can, both academically and in their learning about themselves and their relationships, making a positive difference in their community and the world in which they live.

 

The school builds on the qualities and skills which parents have fostered in their child at home.  From the beginning, staff and governors aim to create a caring and disciplined environment in which each child’s well-being is valued and where they are viewed as an individual.

 

We aim to provide the highest quality of education for all our children, in an environment that is challenging, motivating, caring and moral, where children can acquire the skills and knowledge appropriate to their individual needs through the delivery of a creative curriculum.  Through our pledge we strive to provide a range of exciting learning and life experiences.

 

We help all children to grow emotionally and to learn that courtesy, excellent manners, first class behaviour, consideration and respect for others are very important qualities.  We hope all our children become happy, responsible and independent young people.
