CSH Surrey Community Fund

CSH Surrey launched its Community Fund in 2012 in partnership with the Community Foundation for Surrey with a £10,000 donation from its reserves. Its Fund Panel, comprising co-owners from within CSH Surrey, awards grants every two months to support health and wellbeing projects run by local groups and organisations. A further £25,000 has been donated since 2012.

CSH Surrey’s co-owners (employees) have participated in fundraising events, such as the Three Peaks Challenge, which raised over £7,000 for the Fund. CSH Surrey also supports local charities in different ways, such as donating long-life items to food banks in the area at Christmas time.


Example grants from the fund:

Oasis Childcare Centre – £1,500

Oasis Childcare Centre supports vulnerable families in Elmbridge by providing a community based childcare centre, to further the development of children, and to support and educate parents and families across all social circles. The centre aims to provide a safe haven for under-privileged children.

This funding will offer Art Therapy sessions to adults and children (individuals and groups) to help them explore their emotions and feelings, and through Art, encourage them to thrive in the world around them. These sessions are exploring specific issues raised by each participant, such as the impact of domestic abuse, low self-esteem and self-confidence.

The Sunnybank Trust – £1,000

The Sunnybank Trust supports people with learning disabilities across North East Surrey.

This funding supported the charity’s weekly ‘Kites Club’ project, designed to support otherwise lonely and isolated people with learning disabilities. Each week the club provides a safe space in which attendees can socialise, have fun, learn new skills and come together and talk. Club favourites include live music and interactive performances, discos, sports, games, and bingo. A café, arts and craft activities, and a quiet space are also provided for the group to enjoy.
