In Guildford, there are 10 Linked schools, Surrey University and individuals are involved in various projects. Some initiatives have arisen because a need has been identified, others have resulted from spontaneous ideas from chance meetings. All are based on respect for each other’s culture and institutions.
We have an active committee of 10 people and have 200 supporters. There are regular visits to Mukono and reciprocal visits to Guildford.
Guildford Sea Cadets
We are a very well established Sea Cadet unit that has been in operation since 1942. We were recognised in 2010 as one of the best units in the southern area. This is not only because of our central location, right in the heart of Guildford, but because of our ethos and commitment to provide top notch activities for young people.
Our superb location, perched on the banks of the River Wey near the National Trust's Dapdune Wharf, is so close to the water that you can touch it. And this fits well with our aim; to give young people the opportunity to get out onto the water, gain confidence and have a lot of laughs at the same time.
We want to keep our cadets active both on an off the water. Long evenings in the Summer months mean loads of time on the water: Kayaking, sailing, rowing and driving power boats. Then when the nights draw cold and you think that all we can do is in a classroom you find we keep active: rock climbing, leadership games and activities and sports games.
We currently have 65 cadets, male and female aged between 10 and 18, of whom 16 are Royal Marine Cadets.
We have a wide range of facilities and instructional staff which means we can offer you the opportunity to learn new skills in a safe environment whilst having loads of fun!

Parents Supporting Other Parents - a simple idea that really works!
Home-Start Guildford has been supporting families for more than 20 years. We are a charity and voluntary organisation that aims to prevent family crisis or breakdown by offering regular volunteer support to parents who are under stress with at least one child under the age of 5, usually referred to us by Health Visitors.
We recruit and train volunteers who are parents themselves, to visit the families at home for a few hours once a week and offer them informal, friendly and confidential support, as well as practical help.
This support is aimed to help parents grow in confidence, strengthen their relationships with their children and widen their links with the local community. Ultimately this support helps the children have the best possible start in life.
Please see the volunteer role for more detail.
Independent Monitoring Board
Inside every prison, there is an Independent Monitoring Board (IMB) made up of members of the public from all walks of life doing an extraordinary job!
You’ll work as part of a team of IMB volunteers, who are the eyes and ears of the public, appointed by Ministers to perform a vital task: independent monitoring of prisons and places of immigration detention. It’s an opportunity to help make sure that prisoners are being treated fairly and given the opportunity and support to stop reoffending and rebuild their lives.
You’ll monitor day-to-day life in a prison. You could be talking to prisoners, checking that they are being given access to healthcare and training, or observing how well those at risk of self harm are treated. You will also play an important role in dealing with applications (complaints/requests) from prisoners, which could cover everything from lost property to serious bullying allegations.

Aims and Objectives
We are a registered charity whose volunteers aim to provide a forum for debate about the issues affecting our town and borough.
1/ We are interested in following issues that affect our town and surrounding area:
- Conserving the best of Guildford Town, Urban Area, Villages and Countryside
- Promoting high standards of planning and architecture

- We recognise areas in the borough have active and effective local groups whose work we don’t wish to replicate.
3/ We have some key principles:
- We recognise Guildford and environs will continue to develop and evolve to meet the needs of the population, and this needs to be managed.
- Guildford should remain a proper town, not just a commuter town for London, so we need to support economic activity, our world class educational facilities, and provide a wide range of public facilities e.g. Theatres, Entertainment Venues, Galleries, Meeting Places, Public Realm etc.
- The area needs to be ‘competitive’ with other South East areas in the Arc formed by Cambridge – Oxford – Guildford – Redhill - Ashford.
- Guildford and environs should aspire to be a leader in preserving heritage assets and surrounding countryside whilst enabling vibrant and sensitive development.
- Environment will be a key consideration including:
- Measures to encourage modal transport shift, pollution reduction, reduction in traffic congestion.
- Measures to encourage alternative energy, management/recycling of waste and flood protection.
- The town and its surroundings need to be better linked in a sustainable manner, including making public transport accessible and attractive.
- Guildford and environs should be a borough for all and thus should provide affordable accommodation for all age groups.
- We will actively seek to collaborate with other relevant groups on matters of common interest.
