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.
The Brigitte Trust is a Queen's Award registered charity offering a free service of emotional support and practical help. The service is normally offered face-to-face in the home supporting people and their carers when a life-threatening illness such as Cancer or Motor Neurone Disease has been diagnosed. Currently, and since first lockdown, our volunteers are offering telephone support, though in time we hope to return to the home visiting for which we are widely known. The Brigitte Trust is a trusted partner of Surrey County Council and over 400 referrals have been received from Community Responders throughout Surrey. More volunteers are needed now to support people who have received a late diagnosis or delayed treatment.

Global Sight Solutions (Woking)
Global Sight Solutions is a registered charity, based in Guildford, which provides free eye care to the world’s poorest by establishing eye hospitals in India, Africa and elsewhere. It is estimated that worldwide there are some 50 million poor people in need of this service. Global Sight Solution’s business plan ensures that each facility becomes financially self-sufficient, thereby ensuring that cataract operations, and the like, can be provided on an ongoing basis. Each hospital is administered by members of Rotary International which ensures transparency and accountability of every transaction. Rotary International provides grants for such humanitarian work and thus enables a cataract operation to be carried out for a donation of just £5 here in the UK!
Global Sight Solutions is the trademarked name of The Guildford Rotary Eye Project
