Aerobility offers disabled individuals, without exception, the opportunity to fly an aeroplane. For some, that amazing first flight is enough to change their outlook on disability forever: “If I can fly an aeroplane, what else can I do?”. Others realising that the fantasy of flight is truly in their grasp and can achieve their Private Pilot’s License. We allow disabled people to fly for a fraction of the commercial rate, with a fleet of four modified aircraft, and operations out of Blackbushe Airport and Tatenhill Airport. 1,000 new individuals participate with Aerobility a year.
Chloe's & Sophie's Special Ears Fund
Our small charity brightens the lives of Deaf children. We run a bi-weekly drop in session at "The Hub for Deaf Children" on Sunday's. They play games, activities and workshops which include slime, arts and crafts, animal encounters and more. These sessions improve their mental health, self-esteem, confidence and allow them to just be children. Deaf children need support in school and at home from charities like us. Due to Covid19, we have focused on providing Clear Panel Facemasks, batteries for hearing aids, care packages and online Zoom sessions with a Sign Choir, BSL and 'Make Along With Me' activities.
The Fountain Centre
The Fountain Centre is a small independent charity based at St Luke's Cancer Centre in Guildford. We provide complementary therapies, counselling, information and support to cancer patients and their families from all over Surrey and the surrounding areas. We depend on the support of local companies, community groups and generous individuals to cover our annual costs of over £200,000. As with many small charities, the pandemic has hit us hard and we have had to find new ways to raise money and support our patients and their families. It is a tough time for charities but every little helps.
GRACE (Gynae-oncology Research and Clinical Excellence) supports women with gynaecological cancers by raising awareness of symptoms, funding research to improve treatment and recovery, and providing vital surgical equipment to local hospitals. We now know our response to Covid-19 will last much longer than any of us thought. But women are still being diagnosed and treated for gynaecological cancer every day. We want to be there to help those women around us - our mums, sisters, grandmothers, daughters and friends. With your support for us, we can still be there for them.
The core purpose is providing support to families with children aged 0-11 years so they can provide them with the best possible start in life. We provide trained volunteers and expert support helping families through their challenging times. We are there for parents when they need us the most because childhood can’t wait. The majority of help provided is 1:1 support by volunteers with additional help by some paid workers and group work for families. Covid-19 demonstrated that remote support is also viable for some families and we will have a mix of support offerings in the future. Our families who are disadvantaged often have no one else to turn to and really appreciate our support.

There is a friendly person to chat to for advice, reassurance or referral to specialist support. We can offer care packages plus our range of specialist support for mental health, addiction and anger management.

Frimley Health Charity helps to enhance the physical environment across all our hospitals for patients, staff and visitors.
