CARE in East Grinstead and Lingfield
Care is a charity founded in 1988 by a local group of churches and has its origins in Christian outreach. It is currently supported by churches in East Grinstead, Lingfield and Dormansland. Whilst founded by the church, CARE volunteers are not exclusively church goers.
Care is organised, run and staffed entirely by volunteers. It is not a replacement for professional services.
Can you HELP?Due to the current demand for our assistance and the limited availability of drivers we are currently only able to assist with medical appointments.
Could you give a little of your time to help others?
CARE has recently celebrated a 30th Anniversary

The services we offer are those of a friend or neighbour: time, a helping hand and a friendly ear. Whilst we will endeavour to assist, the service is provided by a limited number of volunteers and there are limits to what we can do.
To cover our costs, clients are invited to make a donation for the service they have received.
How it works:Clients ring the CARE number 01342 410086 between 9.00 am and 2.00 pm Monday to Friday and the Duty Officer finds a volunteer who can help them.
Ours is not an original concept and there are similar schemes in other areas of the UK.
