CFS Grant Success.
In October 2015 Citizens Advice Reigate and Banstead made a successful application to the Community Foundation for Surrey for funds to appoint an Older Person’s Adviser in the Horley area.
The grant was originally restricted to helping those aged 60+ but we recognised a number of clients under that age with long-term health problems also needed support and the scope was extended to 50+ by agreement.
This letter to our District Manager shows the value the grant created.
Thank you for completing and returning the End of Grant Report form for the grant of £9,500 which was awarded from the Bryn Siriol Fund, The Pargiter Trust Fund and the Horley Edmonds Fund to support the recruitment of an Older Person’s Adviser to provide support to 150 vulnerable older people through home visits. It was wonderful to read of the way in which the grant benefitted people.

It also explains the gratitude felt by our clients and ourselves to the CFS and its partner funds.
