Your help through the toughest times

Breast Cancer Haven is the charity that supports women through their breast cancer treatment. When breast cancer tries to rob a woman of her individuality, her confidence or her strength, we provide the tailored package of emotional, physical and practical support that helps her hold on to them. 

We support women and their families via a network of six welcoming centres around the UK and through an expanding network of other services.

We're there to provide women with breast cancer the support that treatment alone can't.

Our trained professional nurses, therapists, counsellors and advisers listen to your individual concerns and give you all the practical, emotional and physical support you need in a tailor-made package.

Our support is free of charge and available in our beautiful Breast Cancer Haven centres – which are as far away from a hospital environment as you can imagine.

Each visitor to Breast Cancer Haven can expect to receive up to ten free hours' of supportive therapy time. In addition, you will also receive two hours' of nurse specialist time at the beginning and end of your tailored programme.

Our free support is also available to men who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Family members

Family members and close friends of people that have been diagnosed with breast cancer can access up to four hours' of free counselling.

Anyone can come – whether you’ve just been diagnosed, having treatment or in recovery. There is no need for a doctor’s referral. So just contact us, make an appointment and we will take it from there.

RSPCA Guildford and Epsom Branch

Mission Statement

The charitable objectives of the RSPCA are to promote kindness and prevent or suppress cruelty to animals by all lawful means.

 

The branch promotes animal welfare in the local area primarily through veterinary assistance, neutering and re-homing. We run a voucher scheme which assists local people with veterinary bills for treatment and neutering. It also helps to control dog and cat populations, thereby promoting responsible pet ownership.

 

The branch assists the RSPCA animal centres, mainly Millbrook and South Godstone, with re-homing unwanted and abused animals by home-visiting.  We also pay for veterinary treatment of stray animals and wildlife attended to by the Inspectorate in our branch area.

 

The RSPCA provides advice for owners on animal care. It also helps animals brought to us for rehoming because their owners are unable or unwilling to keep them. Ill treated or injured animals are cared for by the Society. The public benefits from knowing that we can intervene to assist animals in need.

 

We have a website to raise awareness of the activities of the branch and to help members get more involved. We provide volunteering opportunities for those who wish to support our work, including trusteeship, fundraising and home visiting. This benefits local people and companies by providing the possibility of doing work which is compassionate and rewarding.

 

We also have to fundraise to enable us to continue with our charitable work. The RSPCA receives no government or lottery funding.

Whether lives are measured in days, weeks, months or years, we are here to make every moment count. We support families from diagnosis to end of life and throughout bereavement with a range of nursing, practical, emotional and medical care.

Woodlands and Hillbrow Ltd (Farnham)

Mission Statement

Woodlands and hillbrow were set up as a family care homes. We now have a day centre specialising in dementia and a nursing home called Hill House.  The homes are all run along the same core principle of dignity, respect, courage and caring people as though they are our own family.

Once residents come to live with us we want them to have the best possible quality of life and it to be the last time they ever have to move. In order to achieve this we need volunteers to help us.

I cannot stress the importance of this time in peoples lives, once we have done something it can never be put right, so we try to make it as good as possible at the end of their life.
