CHEER - changing lives

 "I’ve visited CHEER and seen them in action. It's a wonderful local charity providing support and
friendship for the elderly in our community. I’m delighted to see them get this support and recognition." - Dominic Raab, M.P. for Esher and Walton

We are the local charity for older people in east Elmbridge and surrounding areas, and
have been serving the local community for over 60 years.

Our aim is to help elderly residents to lead full, dignified and independent lives in their own homes for as long as possible, instead of having to go into residential care.

CHEER is financially supported by voluntary contributions, and by grants from Elmbridge Borough Council and Walsingham Care.
We are an Approved Provider under the Mentoring and Befriending Foundation accreditation scheme.
