Voluntary Action Elmbridge

Volunteering opportunities in your local community - would you like to help make a difference?

Volunteering is something that everyone can do. Whatever your interests, wherever you live, whether you have a lot of time or a little – you will be giving your time to help charities and community groups improve lives.

Not only will you have the satisfaction and achievement of making a difference, volunteering can also provide you with many benefits including:

  • the opportunity to make new friends and contacts
  • the chance to have fun doing something you've never tried before
  • increased confidence
  • a greater sense of well-being
  • increased job and career prospects and new skills

The Volunteer Centre can help you to start making a difference


Before you start to volunteer it is important to take time to think about exactly what it is you want to do, how much time you want to commit and how often you can do it. We can assist you through this process by either meeting you for a chat, discussing it over the phone or if it's easier via email. Once we've helped you to narrow down your choices we can then put you in touch suitable organisations.

Some of the ways you can help to make a difference...

  • caring for animals and wildlife
  • spending time mentoring and befriending a vulnerable person
  • working outdoors to improve the environment
  • helping on local community projects
  • becoming a school or college governor
  • joining an organisation as a chairman, treasurer, trustee or committee member
  • setting up a volunteer scheme at your workplace
