SFW is a socially-minded business and we offer employees the chance to help others in the local community, here in Woking.
At the York Road Project our volunteers are working with homeless people, 18 years and older and from all walks of life. Examples of the work some of our current volunteers undertake include:
- IT training and facilitation to help get people back to work
- Ad-hoc volunteering on buildings and maintenance
- Assistance with grant applications
Volunteering can be very rewarding: “It’s important to be aware of the wider problems in our society and our volunteers gain new skills as well as using their technology skills for a good cause,” says SFW Head of Sales and Marketing, Richard Page.
Tackling homelessness is not just about getting people off the streets. It's also about finding lasting solutions to stop people from becoming homeless in the first place. If you would like to help, please visit the York Road Project website.
