The day service of Parity for Disabilty provides trained, caring staff to support people with profound disabilities enabling them to continue learning, achieving and accessing a range of activities. They plan frequent trips out and about using the charity’s fleet of minibuses, and access vital physio and speech therapies.

Surrey Young Carers provide respite, support and social events for young people who are the principal carers of a parent, relative or sibling unable to care for themselves. These young people face an onerous daily workload and immense responsibilities. Staff at Surrey Young Carers are able to support them with counselling, advice, respite days, experience sharing, and some social functions to lighten their load.

Camberley 41 Club’s Fundraising Chairman, Mike Mawtus said:

‘Every Christmas, the residents of Surrey Heath are very generous with their donations when 41 Club members go out to several venues with our Santa Float and Christmas Carols. We in turn are delighted to pass on these funds to some small, local Charities and good causes. Parity for Disability and Surrey Young Carer’s, very efficiently. provide essential help and support to members of our community less fortunate than most. Our visits to these charities was a most humbling, but heartwarming experience.’
