Care for Guildford (Free Transport Scheme)

Care for Guildford - What We Do

We are a good neighbour scheme, a network of volunteers providing practical help to improve the quality of life for elderly, vulnerable or infirm residents of Guildford.

The type and demand for services has changed over the years and today we maintain some 150 volunteers helping Guildford residents in need. 

These days, transport to GP surgeries, clinics, dentists and hospitals are the main tasks we undertake. But we also do shopping on behalf of a client or doing small one off jobs in the home like putting up shelves or changing light bulbs.


We provide a number of services that include:

Transport

Lifts to Doctors Surgeries, Dentists, Clinics, Clubs and Day Centres. We can also take you to Hospitals and to visit relatives in nursing homes. We do not go to hairdressers

Shopping

We shop on a weekly or fortnightly basis for anyone who is housebound. We can also shop on a temporary basis, for example when someone first comes out of hospital.

Odd Jobs

We help with small one off jobs around the home such as putting up simple shelves or curtain rails, moving heavy furniture or changing a light bulb for those with limited mobility. We do not undertake housework, plumbing, gardening or electrical repairs.

Cherry Trees (East Clandon)

Mission Statement

Our Vision

 

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.

Cranleigh Riding for Disabled

Mission Statement

Through the commitment of volunteers, RDA enables people with disabilites to ride to benefit their health and well being and to achieve their goals 

Riding offers a degree of independence that many disabled people cannot have in their daily life.
 
There are also medical advantages - the warmth and three dimensional movement of the horse is transmitted through the rider's body, gradually making it more relaxed and supple, reducing spasticity and improving balance, posture and co-ordination. The movement of the pelvis influences the lumbar region and is transferred up the spine thus encouraging control of the trunk and head. Riding a horse makes mobility possible.  From the elevated position on its back, riders have an opportunity to see more than would otherwise be possible for them. The experience our riders gain through the contact they have with our ponies also helps to create a great sense of achievement and confidence. We hope that this will, in turn, make their lives easier and more fulfilled.
