Volunteer With Us

There are so many ways to


halow relies on its 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.


For ease we categorise our volunteering needs in four ways:


  • Social Activity volunteers- help with the many leisure activities organised for halow’s young people such as bowling or youth groups. These are usually in the evening and at weekends.
  • Learning support volunteers- assist with halow’s educational programmes (Building Futures and A Reason to Get Up) that run during the weekday. You could be helping a young person to sail a riverboat one day to helping them to design a computer game another day.
  • Office/admin support workers- help in the halow office with our friendly team. Tasks vary, so please do enquire.
  • Community event volunteer- help with raising awareness and fundraising for halow in a variety of ways (evening, daytime and weekend 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.
