Crossroads Care Surrey
Crossroads Care is Surrey's leading charity providing respite care support to Carers. We've been working across Surrey for over 30 years, with our core purpose being to improve the quality of life of unpaid carers and those they are caring for.
COVID-19 Emergency Response
As a result of Coronavirus, Crossroads swiftly implemented a response by providing essential shopping and prescription collection services to carers and to other vulnerable people that were isolated at home. We provided regular wellbeing calls to check in on people to see how they were coping and to offer support with shopping. We're now developing a volunteer based Outreach Support and Telephone Befriending with Digital Tech project largely in response to Covid, but which enable us to continue to support people who need it with shopping and prescription collections, and also with support in learning and using digital technology. We are seeking new volunteers who are interested in providing Outreach Support and / or Telephone or Digital Befriending.
As an Outreach Support Volunteer you would support people living in the same borough as yourself with shopping and prescription collections. We would provide you with appropriate PPE and pay any related fuel costs.
As a Befriender you would support carers and other older people, or those being cared for, who are feeling isolated and alone and who would benefit from having someone to speak to simply to chat about life, the weather, local services and events etc. We're interested in hearing from volunteers who are relatively IT savvy and would be able to connect to our Cloud based phone system to make telephone or virtual calls to clients. We'd also like volunteers to get involved with an exciting new Befriending with digital tech project, through which you would be able to support people in learning to use, or building confidence in using laptops, smart phones and tablets. Even if you're not computer savvy, but would benefit from being a befriender yourself, please get in touch.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

GOLO, Godalming Lottery
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.
We will not rest until people who are blind and partially sighted can enjoy the same freedom of movement as everyone else.
We will deliver a world class guide dog service as part of a range of mobility services, and work to break down barriers to ensure people who are blind and partially sighted can get out and about on their own terms.
The beliefs that guide the entire organisation:
- Dedicated to superior quality
- Always trustworthy
- Inclusive and embracing
- Customer focused
- Maximising impact
- Passionate and determined
To enhance the lives of all those we come into contact with.

Guildford Sea Cadets
We are a very well established Sea Cadet unit that has been in operation since 1942. We were recognised in 2010 as one of the best units in the southern area. This is not only because of our central location, right in the heart of Guildford, but because of our ethos and commitment to provide top notch activities for young people.
Our superb location, perched on the banks of the River Wey near the National Trust's Dapdune Wharf, is so close to the water that you can touch it. And this fits well with our aim; to give young people the opportunity to get out onto the water, gain confidence and have a lot of laughs at the same time.
We want to keep our cadets active both on an off the water. Long evenings in the Summer months mean loads of time on the water: Kayaking, sailing, rowing and driving power boats. Then when the nights draw cold and you think that all we can do is in a classroom you find we keep active: rock climbing, leadership games and activities and sports games.
We currently have 65 cadets, male and female aged between 10 and 18, of whom 16 are Royal Marine Cadets.
We have a wide range of facilities and instructional staff which means we can offer you the opportunity to learn new skills in a safe environment whilst having loads of fun!

Denecroft is a small residential home for up to 6 adults with learning disabilities, autism and vision impairment. It is situated near to London Road, Guildford close to GLive.
Volunteers help the people who live there to do the things they love and be active in the community.
We provide specialist support, accommodation and eye care help for people with learning disabilities, autism and sight loss.
We don't underestimate people.
We encourage people with disabilities to challenge what they expect from life, from themselves and from wider society.
The people we support overcome huge barriers to achieve exciting new things every day - they challenge us all to think about what’s possible and to rethink disability.
Our aim is that people we support are able to live ambitious lives and achieve things they never thought possible; whether that is forming more friendships and relationships, enjoying new experiences and activities or finding employment.
Our self-advocacy, influencing, supported employment and research programmes mean more people with disabilities are able to change attitudes, influence service provision and change policies towards people with disabilities.

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.
