SHAC Services

SHAC currently runs a small number of local services which are quite invaluable to the older residents of Surrey Heath. We have plans to introduce new services in the Borough depending on sufficient income being derived from the services we provide, grants from other organisations, legacies from local residents and charitable donations from local businesses and individuals.

Visiting and Befriending Service

Thelma

Poor health and reduced mobility make it difficult for many older people to get out. As a result they often become lonely and are at risk of becoming isolated and housebound with increasing difficulty in coping with the complications of modern life. The aim of the Visiting & Befriending Service is to help older people maintain their independence by introducing them to one of our visitors who visits regularly, providing mutual friendship and companionship

If you would like to volunteer for just one hour a week and visit a lonely, older person living near you then this is the lady to ring, Thelma, who runs our Visiting and Befriending service please call 01252 266841.
