We offer a range of services to people, and their families, living with a life-limiting illness in Surrey. If you would like to request support for yourself, a family member, patient or client, please complete the online form here or call our Service Co-ordinator on 07469 932192.

We can offer support to anyone in Surrey living with a life-limiting illness, such as:

Home Visiting

Our free home visiting service carefully matches the client with a volunteer who’ll visit each week, building a relationship centred on the client and their individual needs.

Hospital, Care Home & Hospice Visiting

Our volunteers are able to visit people without close friends or family during the week. When a current client is moved into a care home or hospice, their volunteer can continue to support them in their new location.

Bereavement Support

Grief is a natural process and each person follows their own path in their own time. Volunteer support to a client’s family extends beyond the funeral with visits for up to three months, with time to remember together.

We also run Bereavement Support groups, open to anyone in Surrey struggling with grief and bereavement. These are free to attend.
