We work to place all unpaid carers at the heart of all we do. Today marks Young Carers Awareness Day and we pledge to join forces with others to raise awareness of the exceptional challenges Young Carers face everyday.
A very big thank you to the West Byfleet community who have actively supported carers to have vital respite time away from caring as part of Waitrose West Byfleet Community Matters project. Over the very busy Christmas period, shoppers took time out to collectively give support to unpaid carers by giving their green tokens to support our work in their community raising an incredible £410.00.
Elmbridge Road Runners wanted to do something amazing for the community in and around where they run. They decided to take on a fundraising challenge supporting our children’s club which is based in Walton-on-Thames raising a whopping £1,500.
By supporting our work in memory of a loved one or through leaving a small legacy or gift in your will, you will be helping Crossroads Care Surrey to reach more carers who need a respite break in order to continue their caring role.
More than 80 unpaid carers of children with disabilities and other complex health needs will be able to take regular short breaks, thanks to a grant from Surrey freemasons.
Joining a lottery linked to your local authority means you can support a cause which is important to you locally to where you live, but also support the wider community too.
Looking after loved ones, including family or friends is demanding. It can be a round-the-clock, seven days a week responsibility so often finding time to get away to simply have a few short hours respite time is difficult and we understand that.
