Keeping you connected

We run quarterly networking events, bringing together third sector partners across North Surrey. These events are a great opportunity to meet people from other organisations who may be facing simliar challenges to your own. They are also a good way to meet local funders and of course our team, who are always on hand to support.

Visit our Events page for the date of our next event.

We also run two sector-specific forums, which also meet quarterly:

  • Surrey Heath Mental Health Forum: Anyone who works for an organisation with a connection to mental health is welcome, whether that’s through tackling isolation, age-related mental health or disability. Contact Libby for more details
  • Spelthorne Older People’s Forum: The forum attracts professionals from both statutory and voluntary services and is a valuable way for people to connect and share practice and information. Anyone who works for an organisation with a connection to older people (there’s no defined age, but approximately 55+) is welcome, whether their focus is tackling isolation, age-related physical or mental health or another service.
