Bike Project Surrey
We'd love to hear from you if you're interested in fixing and riding bikes and passing those skills on to others. We are also looking for volunteers who have experience working with young people.
Who is Bike Project Surrey for?
Students not in school come to us for work experience, to learn about bikes and get an industry recognised qualification in Bicycle Care and Maintenance so that they have choices when they leave school.
People in the local community not in work, training or education can come to us to learn about bikes, get work experience and we become a positive part of their routine and life.
Volunteers support students, adults or just work on bikes – because they love bikes too.
Everyone who becomes part of Bike Project Surrey Team contributes to the welcoming and inclusive approach so that people feel good and that they belong at Bike Project Surrey.
- Everyone in the community has the chance to learn about bikes and how to look after them in an environment that is inclusive, welcoming and happy so that people feel valued and that they belong.
- Affordable bikes for the community to buy and use to travel, be healthy, fit and happy.
- Affordable bike service available to the community so that their bikes stay on the road.
- Bikes and parts recycled so that they do not contribute to landfill or pollute the environment. Riding bikes means you’re not driving.
We will provide learning opportunities around bikes for everyone – but especially for young people and adults who are not in education, employment or training. We will offer this through our Alternative Provision and adult placements.
This will be successful because Bike Project Surrey workshops are positive, happy and inclusive places to work and be with others. A shared interest and love of bikes means that while people are at Bike Project Surrey they will meet and learn skills and values from others who they might not otherwise have met.
The bikes we work on will be make made for everyone in the community as affordable recycled bikes for getting about on and keeping fit and healthy. This will also contribute an income to support the vision.
Students, adults and volunteers will be offered industry recognised qualifications, work experience and chance to ‘earn a bike’.
So Bike Project Surrey will…
- Offer access to learning and skills in the local community though partnership with Guildford College
- Provide a range of volunteering opportunities in an inclusive, non-judgemental and supportive environment
- Create opportunities to develop new skills to enhance employability
- Encourage skill-sharing and independence, where new skills are learned in a way that is empowering for all
- Involve volunteers in setting-up a new business and inspire the creation of other similar initiatives
- Promote access to cycling as an affordable and sustainable transport option
- Divert bicycles and their parts from recycling and landfill

Guildford Health Walks
The goal of Guildford Health Walks is that everyone will have access to a short, free and friendly health walk within easy reach of where they live, to help them become and stay active; and we couldn't do this without all the amazing volunteers that make our health walks possible.
From volunteer walk leaders and assistants, volunteers do a fantastic job in supporting and developing the national Walking for Health initiative. I'd love for you to be a part of that too!
Guildford Health Walks currently has five walk groups in Guildford. The groups are: Boxgrove Park, Merrow Down, Shalford, Shere, Spectrum leisure centre, Worplesdon and Whitmoor Common.
The walks are aimed at people recovering from illness, or people wanting to get a bit more active.
Leading walks is a fun way of giving something back to your local community. You will make new friends and discover lovely outdoor places.

SURREY APPROPRIATE ADULT VOLUNTEER SERVICE
SURREY APPROPRIATE ADULT VOLUNTEER SCHEME
Are you looking for a challenge? Do you have some spare time? Do you want to give something back to your community? Is justice important to you and do you like to see fair play?
If your answer is ‘yes’ to any of the above you may want to become an Appropriate Adult.
The Appropriate Adult Service offers support to vulnerable adults and young people who find themselves detained in Police custody. Being an Appropriate Adult is a challenging, fulfilling and rewarding role. The service SAAVS offer is 24 hour 365 days per year and each volunteer owns a regular weekly slot of between 6 and 8 hours.
What will be expected of me?
You don’t need previous knowledge of legal procedures or social work. The role of the Appropriate Adult is not to provide legal advice but to offer impartial support and be a friendly face in the absence of a family member or carer to people who may be feeling frightened, bewildered, and confused in an unfamiliar situation. As an Appropriate Adult you’ll join our team of volunteers and will be on call at times to suit you. You will be available to answer a call to custody in a swift and professional manner and have access to reliable transport. You will offer vital support to those who need it when they need it most.
What sort of person becomes an Appropriate Adult?
All sorts of people become Appropriate Adults and bring different skills to the team. Two things they all have in common is an excellent ability to communicate and a willingness to donate their free time to SAAVS.
Our introductory two-day training sessions for new volunteers are planned for:
14th and 21st March 2020
20th and 27th June 2020
3rd and 10th October 2020
This scheme provides for an adult to be present when a juvenile or vulnerable adult is being interviewed in custody, when a parent or other representative is not available. The volunteers are all trained and ready to attend the police station at any time. This scheme is so successful that it has been the recipient of a number of prestigious awards and is now the only provider of this service to Surrey. The scheme is funded through Surrey Youth Justice Team and Surrey County Council's Mental Health Team.
Surrey Care Trust - Swingbridge Community Project (Guildford)
Tackle disadvantage, social exclusion and hardship in local communities and to help people improve their life chances. We will reach out to people to equip them with the skills to improve their economic situation, to reduce their social isolation and to convince them that they have a valuable contribution to make to society.
Amongst the ways this is achieved are:
Helping people to help themselves for the longer term by providing life-changing opportunities through education and training.
- Running innovative programmes designed to keep disaffected and vulnerable young people in education, either at mainstream school or at one of our own learning centres, so that they achieve the skills and self-confidence they need for a successful and fulfilling life.
- Offering second chance learning and training to people of all ages whose lack of skills limits their opportunities and leaves them economically vulnerable.
- Making training and education programmes available to offenders and ex-offenders, both to improve their own life chances and to create safer communities by helping to reduce re-offending.

Our aim and mission
Unlocking potential and supporting people to overcome life challenges.
One in 4 of us experience mental health problems every year. We believe that nobody should face mental health problems on their own, experience stigma or discrimination. We all have the right to be well both mentally and physically.
What we do
We provide services and support that focuses on people’s needs to regain their power and strength, lead a well-balanced life, maintain and increase their feeling of well-being. We accept referrals from GPs, CMHRSs and other charities, service providers. And people can self-refer as well.
Why we do it
We all feel less than fine at some time in our lives and often we can feel lonely, stressed, bored or at our wits end. We are not medics, not trying to sell you anything and not on a mission to convert you, we are just genuinely interested in making your world a better place.
