We firmly believe in volunteers. Without our volunteers we would not be able to run the project as succesfully as we do now.

Volunteers often hold a community together. Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. It can benefit you and your family as much as the cause you choose to help. Dedicating your time as a volunteer helps you make new friends, expand your network, boost your social skills and confidence and increase your sense of wellbeing.

We work in partnership with voluntary organisations in Surrey, providing a volunteer buddy scheme for those that would like some extra support. If you would like to be a volunteer buddy or think you need a buddy to help you, then please contact the organisations below.
