At The Grange, we couldn’t achieve everything we want to do without our volunteers. What’s more, research now shows that volunteering not only helps the charity, it benefits the volunteer too:
- Volunteering keeps you fit, alert and socially active
- You can meet new people, make new friends, have fun and be part of a team
- Do what you love doing – are you a keen gardener, DIY fan or cook? Do you like being creative or sorting out admin chaos! We’ll match you up with the right role
- Join the team – some volunteers go on to become bank staff working for us when they choose
- Drivers – even two hours a week will enable us to take people we support to our shops in Bookham & Dorking or to activities such as drama groups and clubs or to voluntary and paid work

You will have continuing support and we will make sure that volunteering remains rewarding and enjoyable. No experience is necessary, just a keen interest and the right attitude.
Recruitment requires an enhanced Disclosure Barring Scheme check, paid for by The Grange.
Whilst volunteers are not reimbursed for travel to and from The Grange, any out of pocket expenses whilst volunteering are offered.
Corporate volunteering is an excellent way for companies to develop team leadership skills in an environment outside the workplace. Team members get to know each other, work together, have fun and contribute something positive to the local community.
A group of corporate volunteers can complete in one day a task that would take weeks for staff to do. We take groups of up to 12 individuals per day. Teams hopefully go away from their day at The Grange with more of an understanding of people with disabilities.
Volunteers from organisations can get involved in several ways:
- Team days in horticulture in our grounds in Bookham
- Painting and wood preserving our workshops, gates and sheds
- Running fundraising events in the workplace, eg Dress Down Friday, Coffee and Cake mornings, Sponsored Bike Rides or Swimathons
- Helping us with publicity, IT or training
We are always happy to promote the companies who help us in the local media and through our own supporters newsletter and social media – it’s the least we can do.
