£5K to Crossroads Care, Surrey

Crossroads Care Surrey (CCS) exists to improve the quality of life for disabled and vulnerable people living in Surrey and their volunteer carers.  The charity operates 9 adult social clubs including one which is specifically available to those with dementia.  They do this to help combat the feelings of isolation and loneliness felt by a vast number of older people and to provide a few hours respite to those who care for them.  The clubs provide an opportunity for people with varying disabilities to engage with each other in a range of activities including baking, gardening, choir and memory and ball games for a few hours a day during most weekdays and on Saturdays.  A home-made meal is always provided.  CCS's application was for help with funding of equipment and resources for five of the clubs where equipment is required.  ACT were delighted to be able to pledge £5,000.
