Brigitte Trust Charity. Based in Dorking, expanding into Elmbridge Epsom & Runneymede
Make 2016 your year to volunteer and join a charity supporting people at a time of real need.
We are now running Taster sessions before the training courses where potential volunteers can meet our trainers and get a real feel for the charity and its training and support.
After the taster session volunteers are invited to sign up for either a daytime or evening course, both of which run concurrently.
Choose between a day or evening course to suit. Courses run weekly for 9 3-hour sessions with a full weekend during that time.
Call the office or send us an email today for an informal talk about what the Trust can offer.
More can be found on the training page of our website.
