HOME START GUILDFORD
St Faith's are providing financial support for a second period of three years to enable Home Start Guildford to increase their front line support for families. Each year the Home Start team report back to the St Faith's Trust on the number of additional families they have been able to support due to the funding provided.
CLIFTON HILL SCHOOL
Clifton Hill is a special school for children and young people with severe and profound learning difficulties and autism.
In March 2017 a refurbished Food Technology room was opened with the help of a donation of £35,000 from St Faith's Trust. The school website comments "The Food Technology Room is used by every student at Clifton Hill, gaining essential life skills such as healthy eating, budgeting and cooking. We are extremely grateful to our generous donors – the new room is fantastic !"

Momentum Children's Charity
Through funding for a Family Support Worker, who provides practical and emotional support to local children with cancer or life-challenging conditions, and their families. Families are referred to a Family Support Worker by their local hospital (the charity partners with 5 hospitals in Surrey, SW London and West Sussex), who is then by their side throughout their child's treatment and beyond, whatever the outcome. Every family is different, and the support offered is individually tailored, depending on their personal needs and circumstances. This is a vital role, that is central to the charity's family support programme and helps families cope despite the challenges they face.
