You’ll also get to have a lot of fun and learn new skills.  Whether you can spare an hour or an afternoon, you will help to make sure that as many people as possible can benefit from ASSIST’s work.

Range of Volunteer Opportunities - There is a wide range but here is a sample of the possibilities:

  • As a new friend making regular visits to someone living on their own and possibly housebound.  We always take great care to match people to ensure there are interests or circumstances in common that will encourage the friendship to strengthen and grow.
  • At our monthly lunches, helping with transport, or preparing or serving the lunch.
  • At our monthly seasonal services held in local care homes and the Gostrey Center, with leading a prepared service, giving a small talk, prayers and music.
  • At annual events such as “Songs of Praise” and the annual “Carol Service”, with transport or serving refreshments.

All of these are on a rotational basis to suit your capability and availability.

Farnham Assist is based at 7 St.George’s Yard Farnham Surrey.  If you are interested and would like to talk to us without commitment, please contact Rodney Bates:
