Farnham ASSIST is a Christian organisation which, since 2002, has offered support to older people in Farnham, particularly those who may become isolated from friends and neightbours.  The objective is to listen when people tell us what they would like and then, where possible, set about making it happen.

ASSIST Centre (1)

In 2017, ASSIST was granted the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.

From the start of 2015, Farnham ASSIST’s centre has been located at 7 St.George’s Yard, Farnham GU9 7LW.  St.George’s Yard runs from Castle Street, next to Pizza Express, through to Bear Lane;  the office is on the ground floor of No.7.
