About Us

Voluntary Action South West Surrey is a registered charity and limited company set up in 2008 to help support voluntary and community groups working in the boroughs of Guildford and Waverley. We are a Council for Voluntary Service and member of NAVCA (National Association for Voluntary and Community Action). As well as giving advice, information and support to local groups we also run a Volunteer Centre recruiting volunteers for organisations working in South West Surrey. We are part of a network of similar organisations across Surrey.

We are funded by Surrey County Council, Guildford and Waverley Clinical Commissioning Group, Guildford Borough Council and Waverley Borough Council. We receive funding for our projects from the National Lottery Community Fund, and The Welcome Project.

We are governed by a volunteer Trustee Board. The Chair of Trustees is Ian Handy.
