Other charities supporting carers
We are happy to be supporting carers in Surrey.
There are other organisations that can help you, in Surrey, in other counties, and nationally.
Take a look below.
Crossroads Care Surrey is a charity specialising in offering carers replacement care from trained staff, in order to give you a break, including support if you are looking after someone at the end of their life. They aim to offer a range of care for long or short periods (from 2 hours upwards) at an affordable cost, regularly or as a one-off and offer a limited amount of funded care for those who qualify.
- They also run a variety of social clubs for adults with disabilities (including dementia), allowing carers to have a break and the person they care for to enjoy themselves in a safe and welcoming setting.
- If you’re looking after a child, they also run a Saturday club in Walton for children with disabilities.
Although we can offer you advice and information, we can’t register you as a carer unless you live in Surrey. (The person you care for doesn’t have to live in Surrey though.)
Here are the carers support organisations in Surrey’s neighbouring counties. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if your organisation is missing from this list.
