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 beautiful Surrey location of Windlesham is one steeped in history, home to Windlesham Manor, which appears to be one of the manors granted to Westminster by Edward the Confessor in the early 11th Century. Along with this great history in the village, Windlesham is in the area of many great voluntary organisations which create a very tight knit community. Volunteering not only benefits the community through your help, it also benefits you by introducing you to new people, helping you make new friends and also giving you experience. Such opportunities like working for Sight For Surrey from Windlesham fulfil this; Sight For Surrey are always looking for volunteers to help with their mission to provide services to those who are visually impaired, allowing them to lead full and independent lives. You could help by volunteering as a class assistant or simply by fundraising for the charity. Another organisation in the area is the Windle Valley Youth Project, which provides opportunities for you to help young people aged between 11 and 18 become all they can be, mentoring these young people to help them to achieve whatever they want even when life is difficult. Again close to Windlesham is the group Christopher’s Smile, who are devoted to funding the treatment of childhood cancer. It is run solely by volunteers to better the survival chances of children. So if you’d like to volunteer in Windlesham, all of these organisations combine to make the Windlesham area an attractive one for volunteering and voluntary work.
