Based in Guildford and working in the boroughs of Guildford and Waverley, we:

  • Help local groups fund, run and govern themselves, and keep informed and connected
  • Help local people access voluntary roles and community activities
  • Run three main referral services:
    • ‘Welcome to Volunteering’ and ‘Welcome Buddies’: supporting people to enhance their wellbeing by volunteering and joining in with community activities
    • ‘Social Prescription‘: linking to community services people referred by health or social care.


We employ 11 staff and have a small volunteer team.

We’re funded by Surrey County Council, Guildford and Waverley Clinical Commissioning Group, Guildford Borough Council and Waverley Borough Council. Funding for our projects comes from the National Lottery Big Lottery Fund, and The Welcome Project.


We are governed by a Board of Trustees. The Board’s role is:

  • to set the Organisation’s strategic priorities
