“I feel we are very fortunate living in Ash as there are many opportunities for people to get involved, make friends, learn new skills and be a part of the community we live in.
I hope you find something that interests you.”
Pauline Baxter, a local Ash volunteer
We have a number of volunteering vacancies:
Helping out at one of our social clubs that are run for disabled adults and children (these are located throughout Surrey and are run on a variety of days in the week).
Volunteering to help with administration at one of our offices (these are located in Guildford, Oxted and Spelthorne) and registering their details so that when we run fundraising events we can ask them to help out.
Crossroads Care Surrey is a leading, registered charity providing vital respite breaks to unpaid carers in the county.
Our core purpose is to improve the quality of life of unpaid carers and the people for whom they care.
We provide highly trained carer support workers to take over a carer’s responsibility for a few hours each week. This ‘me-time’ contributes to the carer’s physical and mental wellbeing, enabling them to have some time to themselves to meet with friends, participate in leisure activities, go shopping or simply relax.
The key factor is that they can spend their time with complete peace of mind, knowing that the Crossroads Care Surrey staff member is a qualified professional working to a detailed care plan.
Our services operate throughout Surrey and include three hours of respite care a week, social clubs that give carers an extended break, and a variety of self-funded care packages that offer extended respite breaks.
In partnership with the NHS we also provide a free, unlimited ‘end of life’ service for those caring for someone in the last 12 months of their life.
Crossroads Care excellence is achieved by our dedicated team of carer support workers that understand the needs of carers and the people for whom they care. As an organisation, we are compliant with the Care Quality Commission, CROQUET and Ofsted.
Thanks to statutory funding and the generous donations of our supporters, we currently provide care for 1,500 families throughout Surrey, but with an estimated 108,000 unpaid carers in the county, we need further funding so that we can help more carers in Surrey.
