Make our mission your mission – volunteer at Surrey Place to brighten the day of our clients
Surrey Place is one a few centres dedicated to helping people with developmental disabilities reach their full potential. Our team of clinicians and staff works tirelessly to ensure the best client experience. Our volunteers strengthen this effort in ways that have a lasting impact.
Volunteers represent a valuable part of the Surrey Place team – a diverse community of dedicated individuals who extend a caring hand to our clients and make a significant impact on their lives. Not only do our volunteers come together for a cause they believe in, they gain valuable experiences and new friendships along the way. Volunteers create a sense of belonging that makes everyone feel safe and welcome at Surrey Place. We welcome you to support this effort as our newest volunteer.
There are several reasons to become a volunteer. It is a rewarding experience with benefits that include:
- Gaining valuable collaboration experience
- Learning firsthand about developmental disabilities such as autism and blind low vision
- Expanding your network of healthcare professionals
- Experiencing personal growth
Whether it’s a few hours a week or a few hours a month, volunteers can represent the difference between a frown and a smile on a client’s face. You have a chance to make a real impact on the lives of people with developmental disabilities.
