Donating & Volunteering

TO DONATE

Bottom line is money is always a benefit to a charity like ours. We have ongoing maintenance costs throughout the year and sometimes major components go wrong which needs to be fixed or bought from new.

If you can at all help us financially by raising funds through a collection within your office or at a local school or a charity fundraising then, you would really be making a difference.

Please make out cheques payable to Number Five Project and, if posted, sent to:
Number Five Project, 3-5 York Road, Guildford. GU1 4DR.

Thank-you so much.

If you can help us with donations of foodstuffs or household goods, we have a quick list of current items we could really use below. Please do make sure any food donated is in date, in unopened packaging and derives from a commercial kitchen or from someone with a current food hygiene certificate. Thanks again.

THINGS WE NEED AT THE MOMENT SEE HERE

VOLUNTEERING

Number Five has a small core of staff but is greatly aided by both regular and occasional volunteers who bring a breadth of talent to help out!  This includes volunteering a skill like painting, plumbing, electrical work , window cleaning etc. all little things that help our service give back to the homeless in your local borough of Guildford.

Are there any obligations once I have offered to help?  There are no obligations in terms of the level of commitment or regularity: you might wish to offer your help as a one-off event, occasionally, or on a more regular basis, it is entirely up to you but we appreciate any community spirit 🙂

Due to the nature of the work we also ask that all volunteers be aged over twenty-one years. However, due to the nature of our work and our responsibility towards you and others, we ask all potential volunteers to read health & safety information and complete some paperwork before they start volunteering with us. Volunteering can be very rewarding but is not for everyone.  Clients can display challenging behaviour at times but they do appreciate the support and compassion that you may be able to offer.

Due to such a generous community spirit we have enough volunteers for making meals for us, however this could always change in the future so please check back from time to time.
