Community inclusion - being part of your neighbourhood

People with learning disabilities and autistic people can be part of their community in different ways.

This can mean having a job, volunteering, doing activities in the local area, and being part of their neighbourhood.

Find opportunities in Surrey and learn how you can be active in your community.


Please see the attached flyer regarding strength based approaches.

Volunteering is a good way to learn new skills and use your time to help other people. Some people volunteer to get experience which they can use to find a job.

Volunteering can be for just a few hours every month, or it can be more such as volunteering for a few days every week.

We have a list of volunteering websites in Surrey.
