If you are a carer, make sure you let us know so you can be registered as a carer.
Please collect a form from reception or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can forward your details to Action for Carers who can provide additional support.
Surrey Independent Living Council
Surrey Independent Living Council (SILC) is a non-profit-making voluntary sector organisation run by and for disabled people. Please visit their website for more information: www.surreyilc.org.uk.
The Surrey Hubs are local centres for information and support to help people stay independent. These user-led hubs are accessible to everyone, and offer a place to discuss your own needs or look for information and advice for yourself or a family member.
The Hubs are designed to cater specifically for the needs of disabled and older people as well as carers and are all based in central high street locations at the heart of the community, so they are very easy to find.
Visit their website for more information: www.thesurreyhubs.org.uk.
