A warm welcome to White Lodge

 

Here in this wonderful corner of Surrey we provide services that enable those with a range of disabilities, their families and carers to lead fulfilling lives.

For over 57 years we have helped enable people with disabilities and we now support over 2,500 individuals across Surrey and beyond.

We are situated on a wonderful two acre site in three specialist buildings with great facilities and services for all ages that include physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, specialist nursery, hydrotherapy, holiday clubs, personal support in the home, short breaks (respite), fitness and rehabilitation and many activities such as trips out, art, baking, swimming, and much more.

It costs over £2.6 million a year to run our services and these costs are not fully met by statutory funding, so we do rely on voluntary donations and currently fundraise for over £550,000 per year. There are many ways to get involved in our work, including volunteering and fundraising or through community groups, schools and local businesses who can partner through a range of schemes and opportunities.
