What our Volunteers say
I have been volunteering at Headway for over 10 years. I enjoy assisting the clients in the various activities and outings and look forward to a big game of pool at lunchtime.
Staff, clients and volunteers all contribute to the fun atmosphere.
David S 2017 (Still volunteering 2020)
I started volunteering at the Centre in 2017. Initially my reason for volunteering was the chance to give something back to the community but it quickly became something much more than that.
Thursdays are spent with the Centre staff and other volunteers helping members with, amongst other things, cognitive, executive and life skills.
It is so rewarding to see the progress of members improving their skills over the weeks far beyond what might have been expected. This is all done in a caring environment where learning is made fun and enjoyable.

What can I do?
Volunteering for Headway Surrey can involve anything from playing Scrabble, baking cakes to abseiling - from making a pot of tea to organising a barn dance! Whatever your skills and experience - we can find you a role.
How much time do I need?
Some of our volunteers come in regularly for 2 hours a week, one or two days a week and some may volunteer for just one day a year - you can spend as much or as little time as you like. All our volunteers are greatly valued and being a small, local organisation you can see the immediate results and benefits of your work.
Do I get any training?
Guidelines, information and support will be given to all volunteers - along with training where appropriate. Volunteering can be a very rewarding experience, giving you the opportunity to make new friends and gain new skills.
