Local Care Clubs

hand-heart-icon

We are delighted to announce the re-launch of our adult social clubs following eighteen months of closure due to Covid19

We know how important it to get out and about, meet people and enjoy life to the full – whether you’re the person caring or the person being cared for. That’s why we go beyond just offering respite breaks and provide a series of clubs and activities across Surrey for people with care needs.

The clubs will re-open as part of a phased plan with venues in Byfleet in West Surrey and Reigate in the East of the county from January 2022. Both clubs will cater for varying levels of care needs, with one day each week for those people with more complex care needs.

Crossroads Activity Centres

From social clubs for adults with varying disabilities and Care Cafés for carers, through to groups aimed at those with dementia, we have something for everyone. These clubs are a great value way to give carers an extended break of up to five hours for minimal cost.

And best of all, these are open to everyone – so don’t worry if you don’t receive respite breaks from us, you’re still more than welcome to join one of our clubs – just give us a call to find out more first.

About our clubs

Crossroads Care Surrey’s clubs are run by highly skilled professional care teams and trained volunteers. They create a safe, welcoming environment where your loved one can meet other people in a relaxed, social setting and enjoy meaningful activities which are specifically tailored to individual needs.

Booking a club place can support you and your loved one to feel less isolated and, in turn, improve your physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing.

Our clubs will be full of fun and include interesting things to do. Some of our regular activities include:

  • table tennis, pool, boccia, darts and table-top games such as chess or bingo
  • music and singing
  • gardening and DIY projects
  • painting, arts, and crafts e.g., card making
  • flower arranging

and any other achievable activities your loved one enjoys!

Who can attend?

All Crossroads Care Surrey clubs are open to most people with care and support needs, with the main aim of giving their carers an enjoyable break. If you are unsure that our clubs are the right environment to support you and your loved one, we can offer a trial session with prior arrangement.

Joining our clubs

If you’re caring for someone with care needs, we want to support you to have a break, special time away from caring. Clubs can give you peace of mind to go off and enjoy your own space with qualified Carer Support workers to take on your caring role for a few hours. Call us today to find out more about how our community clubs can support you.

However, there are a few things we need to work through before you join us, just so we can be sure our clubs are right for you or your loved one.

  • You can attend as many clubs in a week as you would like but only the first one will be at the subsidised rate
  • Each session must be booked in advance with your local Care Co-ordinator
  • A place at the Club is subject to an assessment of care needs to ensure we can support the person
  • If a place at a Club is offered please let us know if the attendee is not attending that day/week
  • You will need to arrange suitable transport to and from the Club for the attendee

If you’d like to chat about coming to one of our clubs, or need any further information, please call 01372 869970 or email enquiries@crossroadscaresurrey.org.uk
