For over 40 years Cherry Trees in East Clandon has provided home from home respite care for children and young people with severe learning and physical disabilities. All our children are vulnerable and need very special care. These children are best looked after at home but sometimes their families need a break. Cherry Trees offers professional care in a safe and loving environment, where every child is valued for who they are.
The Number Five Project is a direct access night shelter for homeless men and women over the age of 18. We aim to support those who want to help themselves stabilise and move towards more independent living. We offer short term emergency accommodation with support. The project opens every day of the year at 6pm and provides a hot evening meal, hot showers, a bed for the night and breakfast in the morning. We close at 10am daily and are shut throughout the day. Inside we have a communal dining room and TV lounge and we offer 1-2-1 key-worker support to all our residents. We are linked in with the local homeless outreach support team and between our services we offer help with longer term accommodation, benefits, medication and referrals to local specialist agencies, for example, addiction services.
Whilst mental health has become a ‘hot-topic’ over the last few years, Oakleaf have been working tirelessly to support some of the most vulnerable adults in the Surrey community since 1997. Their beneficiaries are adults aged 16-67 suffering from any mental illness, including schizophrenia, depression, bi-polar disorder and anxiety. They address multiple problems of social isolation, unemployment, poverty and discrimination that their clients face. They help clients to overcome huge barriers and work with them to rebuild their future - by actively training, engaging and supporting them to gain practical skills and the confidence needed to return to the workplace.
In 2019, Oakleaf supported over 720 individuals in the Surrey community, helping 75 people back into employment. Their support made 84% of clients feel more confident and 91% of clients feel less isolated.
