We are not currently recruiting for volunteers. We will update this page when recruitment reopens. We have volunteering opportunities to help you make the most of your skills or learn new ones, all while helping to support elderly and vulnerable residents across the borough. Volunteering doesn’t need to be a full-time commitment. A couple of hours every fortnight could be all it takes to make a difference to your local community. Our services run across the borough, so no matter where you live in Elmbridge, there are opportunities near you.

Once you’ve decided on a role, our Volunteer Coordinator can meet with you to discuss what opportunities are available near you, and guide you through the application process. As part of the process we will need to collect 2 references, and many of our roles also require a disclosure and barring service (DBS) check, but we can help you with this as well. After your application is completed, we'll put you in touch with a member of the community support team who will help you get started in your new role. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer short term volunteering opportunities or Duke of Edinburgh placements. For a list of other volunteering placements available in the borough, contact Central Surrey Voluntary Action.
