Bike Project Surrey

Mission Statement

Who is Bike Project Surrey for?

Students not in school come to us for work experience, to learn about bikes and get an industry recognised qualification in Bicycle Care and Maintenance so that they have choices when they leave school.

People in the local community not in work, training or education can come to us to learn about bikes, get work experience and we become a positive part of their routine and life.

Volunteers support students, adults or just work on bikes – because they love bikes too.

Everyone who becomes part of Bike Project Surrey Team contributes to the welcoming and inclusive approach so that people feel good and that they belong at Bike Project Surrey.

Vision

  • Everyone in the community has the chance to learn about bikes and how to look after them in an environment that is inclusive, welcoming and happy so that people feel valued and that they belong.
  • Affordable bikes for the community to buy and use to travel, be healthy, fit and happy.
  • Affordable bike service available to the community so that their bikes stay on the road.
  • Bikes and parts recycled so that they do not contribute to landfill or pollute the environment. Riding bikes means you’re not driving.

Mission

We will provide learning opportunities around bikes for everyone – but especially for young people and adults who are not in education, employment or training. We will offer this through our Alternative Provision and adult placements.

This will be successful because Bike Project Surrey workshops are positive, happy and inclusive places to work and be with others. A shared interest and love of bikes means that while people are at Bike Project Surrey they will meet and learn skills and values from others who they might not otherwise have met.

The bikes we work on will be make made for everyone in the community as affordable recycled bikes for getting about on and keeping fit and healthy. This will also contribute an income to support the vision.

Students, adults and volunteers will be offered industry recognised qualifications, work experience and chance to ‘earn a bike’.

So Bike Project Surrey will…

  • Offer access to learning and skills in the local community though partnership with Guildford College
  • Provide a range of volunteering opportunities in an inclusive, non-judgemental and supportive environment
  • Create opportunities to develop new skills to enhance employability
  • Encourage skill-sharing and independence, where new skills are learned in a way that is empowering for all
  • Involve volunteers in setting-up a new business and inspire the creation of other similar initiatives
  • Promote access to cycling as an affordable and sustainable transport option
  • Divert bicycles and their parts from recycling and landfill
  • Encourage healthy lifestyles

Breast Cancer Haven, Wessex

Mission Statement

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.

How we do it

We offer advice on practical things like money and work, help combatting stress, exhaustion and nausea, advice on healthy eating and exercise. And above all, there will always be someone to talk to about your deepest fears.

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.

If you can't get to one of our Breast Cancer Haven centres help is also available over the telephone, through our self-help films on this website or via our Haven at Home DVD which you can order free of charge from our shop.

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.

GOLO, Godalming Lottery

Mission Statement

Golo is a small society lottery, run like a raffle, to raise funds for local causes in Godalming, and to foster community spirit

The Godalming Lottery was started by the Go-Godalming Association in 2008 to raise funds for local causes.  It remains the only independent town lottery of this type in the country.  It's a Small Society lottery run like a raffle with cash prizes.  Tickets (Golos) cost £1 each and are on sale throughout the town.  At the end of each month we have a Draw in the centre of town and give away 17 cash prizes totalling £1000, top prize £500.  All our remaining proceeds (at least 20% of our gross takings each month) go to local causes which anyone from Godalming can suggest.  We have currently given away ~£27,000 to schools, day centres, sports clubs, the museum, arts and community projects and many others.  The complete list of our contributions, with photos, is available on our website.  Here's just a few: We've bought computers to help elderly people learn to surf the net, goals for a children's football team, a keyboard for Godalming Theatre Group, our Jubilee Beacon, patient's tables for Milford Hospital, equipment for an eco-pond at a local school, theatre trips for young carers, and Christmas hampers for disadvantaged families.

Unllike most charity lotteries, most of our sales are done personally rather than online.  Just as important as raising the money for our causes is the community spirit Golo helps nurture.  It truly is a 'win win' initiative.   Shops which sell Golos benefit from increased footfall.  Our £500 winner each month is presented with their cheque at the outlet where the winning ticket was sold which is great publicity.  We invite sponsorshop which helps cover our printing costs and is a wonderful way for local businesses to raise their profile locally and is highly cost effective.

Rowleys Centre for the Community Cranleigh

Mission Statement

Rowleys Centre for the Community  is situated in the heart of the centre of Cranleigh. We pride ourselves on being a community venue offering many additional advantages to the local community beyond the purpose for which it was initially intended.  Providing high quality services to maintain and improve the health and wellbeing of our local community is at the heart of what we do.

Purpose

Rowleys primarily offers a place for the older population to socialise, keep physically active, stay connected and acquire new skills, which has a positive impact on their overall health and wellbeing and supports reducing social isolation.

Whilst our main aim is to promote the wellbeing of all older people and assist them in making later life a fulfilling and enjoyable experience we would like to ensure the Community Centre is open to all and available for other groups to utilise outside of the core offer.

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.

Shooting Star Children's Hospices (Guildford)

Mission Statement

Shooting Star Children's Hospices is a leading children’s hospice charity caring for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families.

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.

Our bespoke support is free of charge to families and available 365 days a year. Our care service includes short breaks at our two hospices (Shooting Star House in Hampton and Christopher’s in Guildford), Hospice at Home, day care, symptom management, end-of-life care, bereavement care and a comprehensive range of therapies and support groups for the whole family.

It costs £10 million a year just to maintain our current level of care and, with around 10% of our income coming from government funding, we rely on our supporters’ generosity to keep the service running. What’s more, we know there are many more families desperate for our vital support, so it’s crucial we raise more funds to provide more care.

We have volunteer opportunities at our hospices and at our shops.   Volunteers roles are very varied and include working in reception, kitchens, housekeeping, gardening, pool watching, admin, fundraising, shops and at our events.
