Voluntary Support North Surrey

It is perhaps one of the most unlikely yet enduring features of a town some say is struggling, like many urban centres, to maintain its heritage.


The Runnymede village of Ottershaw is certainly a location that you can volunteer from or within. Notably mentioned in H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds, Ottershaw is a quaint village home to approximately 2900 people. In the area, there are a vast amount of organisations looking for volunteers to help bolster the community, an example being the Ottershaw village hall. Having re-opened after refurbishments, the hall is an excellent venue for Children’s parties, family events, society meetings or dance classes, making it an excellent place to volunteer if you want to meet people, make new friends and interact with the community first hand. If you’d like to volunteer in Ottershaw,  One to One in North West Surrey are close by. They’re an organisation who arrange social activities for adults with learning disabilities 3 nights a week in the locale and need drivers and organisers for those activities.  Obviously,  One to One offer an excellent opportunity for anyone to interact and volunteer with those with learning disabilities. Another organisation who support  local residents with learning disabilities is the White Lodge Centre, an amazing organisation that offers a vast amount of different activities in order to deliver high quality services that will benefit the social and emotional well-being of anyone who attends. They also provide a strong support network that is well trained and connected to those who utilise its services. Located in Chertsey, White Lodge is just 4 miles away from Ottershaw, making it an extremely viable volunteering opportunity. These organisations, like many others, are great chances to do charity work, not only benefitting your community, but you too.
