halow project (Guildford)


Community Event Volunteer

Volunteer with halow!

halow supports young adults aged 16+ with a learning disability to live independent lives and become more involved in their local community. We rely on our team of volunteers who build relationships with the young people we support to engage them in a wide range of activities. We treat our volunteers with the utmost respect as they are valued members of our team and play a critical role to our success and future.

 

There is no minimum time constraint, all we ask is a commitment from volunteers. So, whether you can help once a week, once a month or three times a year, volunteers are essential to us.

 

Our community event volunteers help with raising awareness and fundraising for halow in a variety of ways including at our exciting corporate fundraising events.

 

Although our offices are based in Guildford, we welcome volunteers from various places, as opportunities for their support arise all over Surrey. They are not expected to come to us with any previous experience; all we ask for is commitment and a willingness to work with our young people.

About us

The halow project is a growing community-based charity, situated in Guildford, Surrey. We support young people, aged 16+, with a learning disability on their journey into adult life.

The young people we work with want the opportunity to:

  • Build relationships
  • Become part of the community
  • Find meaningful employment
  • Have a home of their own

We believe that the young people we support have the right to be part of and respected in their communities and are entitled to a life they choose in ways which best suit them. halow is committed to developing creative opportunities and removing social barriers.
