The Grange Centre (Bookham)


Buddies

We are an organisation that supports people with disabilities and helps them achieve their potential.

We are based in Bookham.

Do you like sport? Perhaps you like walking or going to the cinema?

A number of our clients would love to access these things and more but would like someone to go with them. Buddies act as friends to enable our clients with disabilities to access a wide variety of activities. Hopefully the relationship will grow into a friendship over time.

Each Buddy is carefully matched with a client and needs to be friendly, reliable, sensitive and have a good sense of humour.

All volunteers require a Disclosure and Barring Service check.

We provide a full induction.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to be an organisation where people with disabilities are respected and encouraged to achieve their potential.  We want everyone at The Grange to participate as equals and be treated with courtesy and dignity.  Everyone has the right to be involved in making choices about their own lives and is encouraged to take responsibility for themselves.
