Help to get out of the house

Coronavirus: support and information

If you need help during the coronavirus outbreak, please see our coronavirus webpages.

You can find details of our community helpline and other ways to get support on our I need help page, and there's also help and support if you are self isolating.

There are lots of day centres, groups and clubs across Surrey that will give you the chance to get out and about, and meet other people. Help with transport may also be available locally to get you to places you want to go.

If you have difficulty using public transport, or you just need some support to get out and about, there are a variety of community transport schemes in Surrey that can help.

Community transport and Dial-a-Ride services are often provided by borough and district councils, but there are also a number of voluntary schemes that offer either scheduled services or door-to-door transport.
