Our Services

We offer a range of services to people and their families facing 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 service to help match a volunteer who visits the same family member each week – building a relationship centred on the client and their individual needs with a careful match of volunteer and client.

Hospital, Care Home & Hospice Visiting

Our volunteers are able to visit people without friends or family close by during the week and when a current client moves into a care home or hospice, their volunteer can also continue to support them.

Bereavement Support

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

Our Bereavement Support groups are open to anyone in Surrey- just remember to book a place through the Eventbrite page.
