Unfortunately, we have had to suspend our services until further notice, to protect our volunteers. This was not an easy decision but necessary in the circumstances. The office phone line is not being manned and it is not being monitored for messages.
If there are any changes to this situation we will post them on the website and try to communicate them to our clients as best we can. You will appreciate how difficult that will be though.
We will resume our services as soon as it is safe for us to do so. In the meantime we hope you can stay safe in these difficult and unique times.
Care in Shepperton is a group of local volunteers which offers 'Good Neighbour' help to those who may need assistance. We provide support to the ill, elderly and housebound living in the postal area of TW17, i.e. Shepperton, Littleton, Upper Halliford and Charlton Village (in the borough of Spelthorne). Our tasks consist mainly of Hospital and Health Centre journeys, lifts to hairdressers and shopping by list.
Our volunteers are men and women of all ages and abilities who give people the kind of help which would normally be given by a friend or relative. We have drivers who can get you to hospital, doctor or dental appointments, and one-to-one helpers who will do shopping, collect prescriptions, etc. However, we do not undertake personal tasks, i.e. laundry, housework, etc. See the More about Us section of the website for further details.
