What we do

Caring for a child with a complex disability can be exhausting, isolating and emotionally and physically challenging. Without the provision for short break care to rest and re-energise, these families are at greater risk of breaking down.

Cherry Trees provides home from home care for children with complex disabilities and a meaningful break for their families, all across Surrey and the surrounding counties. 

Last year, Cherry Trees provided a lifeline to 75 families by providing 1,512 sleepovers and 603 tea or day visits. On top of this core care, we ran five parent and staff wellbeing days, and provided small but vital financial grants through our bursary and welfare funds. These additional services ensure our families receive the physical, emotional and financial support they need.

Providing this lifeline costs £1.3m a year. This is part funded by the local authority but costs, on average, an additional £4.25 per hour of care.

Thank you again for your support.

It is only through the generosity of people like you that we can continue to provide home from home care for children with complex disabilities, providing the best experiences for every child and family who rely on us.

We hope you have a very merry festive period.
