Action for Carers Surrey
Enabling carers to have a voice and realise a life outside caring


Reed Recruitment's gigantic generosity!

Reed Recruitment in Surrey have given Surrey's young carers an incredible number of Christmas gifts!

Christmas comes early to SYC

Staff at our offices this afternoon were called upon to carry out some elf duties as an AMAZING number of gifts were delivered by Reed Recruitment in Surrey.

Emily and Anthony from Reed Recruitment said that they had wanted to support Surrey's young carers as they knew how demanding caring can be and the impact it can have on children.

Anthony from Reed told us:

"My son used to be a young carer looking after his Mum who has epilepsy so I know first hand what a burden that can be for a child. When we were looking for a local charity support we felt Surrey Young Carers was a natural fit, we know young carers can often be overlooked and we wanted to rectify that."


Emily from Reed worked incredibly hard, calling up clients to tell them about Surrey Young Carers, she managed to secure a huge amount of support with donations from the following organisations:

Colgate Palmolive
Vivid Imaginations
Grant Handling
Oxford Strategic Marketing
REED Educations

Emily adds:

"When she heard what we were up to even my Nan donated!"

Emily worked with her team to buy and wrap all the gifts, meticulously labelling them so we can distribute them to young carers and their families.

The teams from Surrey Young Carers will be delivering the presents in the run up to Christmas. Amanda Yarker from SYC says:

"We are so incredibly thankful that Reed Recruitment chose us to be their charity partner for this. The number of gifts is staggering but we know they will be so gratefully received by young carers across Surrey!"

A massive THANK YOU to all at Reed Recruitment and their generous clients who have done something extra special this Christmas!
