We have a Man Shed in the grounds of the Hospice which offers practical sessions for men and ladies led by trained volunteers. No matter what your skill set, you can make bird boxes, bird tables, chopping blocks and many other items under their watchful eyes. It is open to bereaved relatives and patients as well as families and carers and you would be welcome to join in the weekly sessions.
Carers and families
Support for carers
Caring for someone who is seriously ill can be stressful and tiring. We know that time is precious.
We are committed to supporting the families and carers of people who are seriously ill with a range of options. If you would like further information on any of them please call Rosie Noble, Families and Carers’ Lead on 01372 468811 ext 873 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. All the activities are free and require booking in advance.
Further support for carers
There is also further support available for carers in Surrey – you can find out more below.
For more information or a chat please contact Rosie Noble, Families and Carers’ Lead 01372 468811 ext 873 or email email@example.com.
Support for children, young people and families
When dealing with stress and loss, children and young people may have different needs to adults. So we provide support especially for them. Our specialist social workers offer advice for children, young people and parents in individual and family sessions. There’s no time limit – we’ll be here for as long as you need us. We can also help school staff or other professionals to offer support.
Currently 1:1 face to face meetings with children and families are taking place. Please call Helen Shepherd on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07918 747597 to talk about what additional support is needed.
The Dovetail Group meets monthly and provides an opportunity for bereaved children and young people to get together in a friendly space, where practical and emotional support is offered whilst having fun with creative activities.
