Welcome to our website

We support and strengthen the voluntary, community and faith sectors in Surrey with funding and business advice, advocacy and financial service: we’re here to help you to help others.

We work with many hundreds of people and organisations across Surrey providing services such as payroll administration and community buildings advice and supporting projects such as voluntary car schemes and rural housing provision.

Vitally, with our expertise, we help communities at a grass roots level.  Projects include working with vulnerable groups with challenging needs and behaviours, families in need (housing and benefits support) and assisting the elderly.  You will find a list of our projects here
