Please see the "Our Clubs" page for the latest information on our four clubs.
ACTION FOR CARERS - CARERS SUPPORT GROUP
The Carers Support Group meets on the first Wednesday of each month between 2-4pm. Carers and former Carers are all welcome. The group is generally based at West Horsley Village Hall, The Street, KT24 6DD but outings are also sometimes organised.
Please contact Rachel at Action for Carers Surrey (0303 040 1234) if you would like to find out more about the group, to let them know that you are coming and if you need transport.
Although this group is a separate charity from the Wheel of Care, both charities work together to help local people so if you are a West Horsley resident and would like the Wheel of Care to help you with transport to/from any meetings or outings, please ring 01483 281703 (Monday-Friday 10am-noon). We would be happy to help!
FIRST AID COURSE
The British Red Cross ran another first aid session for Wheel of Care volunteers on 6th September 2019 at West Horsley Village Hall.
The course covered basic emergency first aid including heart attack, CPR & falls and gave all participants the knowledge of what to do in the all-important time before an ambulance arrives. Attendees were also shown how to use a Public Access Defibrillator which is for anyone to use on someone in cardiac arrest. These are stored in briefcase-sized boxes and can be found in public spaces like your local shopping centre, village hall or gym (there is one at West Horsley Village Hall as well as Grace & Flavour).
All volunteers are welcome to attend but especially if you have not attended previously or if it has been more than 3 years since you last attended a first aid course. If you are interested in attending a course in the future, please contact Nicki Douet by e-mailing her at email@example.com.
DRIVER AWARENESS COURSE
A Driver Awareness Course, led by Vicki Turton from Surrey Community Action,
was held on 19th September 2019 at The Wheelhouse and was open to registered volunteers who drive for the Wheel of Care. The aim of the course was to help volunteers:
The course was very well received and the feedback positive - "Good reminder of road rules and signs", "I will be driving more concious of others", Will be more aware of people's mobility". All the volunteer drivers thought the training was useful and would put the training into practice in their volunteering for the Wheel of Care.
It is hoped that another course will be run in the future. If you would like to register your interest, please contact Nicki Douet by e-mailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
