About the British Red Cross
The British Red Cross helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. We are part of a global voluntary network, responding to conflicts, natural disasters and individual emergencies.
We enable vulnerable people in theUKand abroad to prepare for and withstand emergencies in their own communities. And when the crisis is over, we help them to recover and move on with their lives.
Citizens Advice Waverley
We help people resolve their legal, money and other problems by providing free, independent and confidential advice, and by influencing policymakers.
We operate from offices in Cranleigh, Farnham, Godalming and Haslemere, offering a five days-a-week telephone, drop-in and appointment service. We have over 160 volunteers across our offices, undertaking many roles. These include fundraisers, trustees, administrators, receptionists, social policy campaigners, advisers and assessors.
We use the information we gather carrying out this work to campaign for social justice, so that individuals do not suffer through a lack of knowledge or an inability to express themselves effectively.

Crossroads Care Surrey
Crossroads Care Surrey is an established charity of over 30 years, offering a range of support services to carers and the people for whom they care. We are committed to supporting people at an earlier stage in their care journey and recognise there can be a considerable length of time between a person needing some care and support periodically and them needing full time, round-the-clock care.
Community Support Volunteers will support Crossroads Care Surrey by providing the delivery of essential shopping for cared for people and carers that are struggling with the weekly shop or collecting prescriptions. With access to your own vehicle, you will receive requests made by the Community Support Co-ordinator to complete a shopping trip to help the people Crossroads Care Surrey support in your community.
Befriending Volunteers will support befriending service to the people we support, enabling them to benefit from knowing there is someone there to listen, understand, be their friend and check in on their wellbeing. Calls could last anything from 10 minutes to half an hour and you will need to ensure that you can listen with understanding and patience and then respond appropriately.
Our Companion Volunteers provide visits upwards of 1 and a half hours. Companionship visits are generally provided by our team of volunteers and are geared up towards people in the early stages of their caring journey, and their loved ones who do not – at this stage – require round-the-clock or specialist support.
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 email@example.com 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 Borough Council - Community Wellbeing Team
Do you love gardening? Do you like helping those in your community? Then we have the perfect project for you!
We are looking for volunteers to help those in their local community, who are not able to upkeep their gardens. We are aiming to start the project in Merrow during the Springtime. This is a pilot project and in the future, we would love for it to be rolled out across all the wards of Guildford.
Guildford Health Walks
The Health Walks national programme is run by the Ramblers and its goal is that everyone will have access to a short, free and friendly health walk within easy reach of where they live, to help them become and stay active, and we couldn't do this without all the amazing volunteers that make our health walks possible.
From volunteer walk leaders and assistants, volunteers do a fantastic job in supporting and developing the Walking for Health initiative. I'd love for you to be a part of that too!
Guildford Health Walks currently has five walk groups in Guildford. The groups are: Boxgrove Park, Merrow Down, Shalford, Shere, Spectrum leisure centre, Worplesdon and Whitmoor Common.
The walks are aimed at people recovering from illness, or people wanting to get a bit more active.
Leading walks is a fun way of giving something back to your local community. You will make new friends and discover lovely outdoor places.
