No.7 St.George’s Yard Farnham GU9 7LW
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.
In the light of Government advice regarding corona virus, Farnham ASSIST has decided to suspend all normal activities and outings throughout April and May. They plan to notify everyone when they are able to resume, which hopefully will be during June or July. During this period they will endeavour to keep the office open and increase telephone contact with those they support.

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