ABOUT US

Voluntary Action South West Surrey is a registered charity and limited company set up in 2008 to help support voluntary and community groups working in the boroughs of Guildford and Waverley.

 

We are a Council for Voluntary Service and member of the National Association for Voluntary and Community Action (NAVCA).

 

As well as giving advice, information and support to local groups we also run a Volunteer Centre recruiting volunteers for organisations working in South West Surrey, as well as being host of the Guildford and Waverley Social Prescribing Service.

In 2024, we launched our Volunteer Connections project.
