Voluntary Support North Surrey

Time to Talk is a befriending service for residents of Surrey Heath and Runnymede. We support people of any age experiencing loneliness and isolation.
This is a free service run by trained volunteers who give their time to help keep people company.
If you have been feeling lonely and would like someone to visit you, please get in touch. You may be in need of someone to come and spend time with you at home or take you on an outing.
We look forward to hearing from you.

Information for volunteers

Please consider volunteering for an hour each week for Time to Talk to help us tackle loneliness in Surrey Heath and Runnymede. We have a team of volunteer befrienders to keep people experiencing loneliness company.
Befriending has a valuable positive effect on lives. As a volunteer you will not only brighten someone’s day, you will meet new people, learn new skills and make a difference in your community. Befriending is a flexible volunteering role, which can fit around other commitments.
Volunteers are trained, supported and well matched with people with similar interests.
All you need to be a befriender is friendliness, reliability and an ability to listen.
We look forward to hearing from you.
