Tandridge Voluntary Action (TVA) is a charity supporting voluntary, community and faith organisations in the Tandridge district of East Surrey.

Dear All

A Happy New Year from the TVA team to all in the voluntary and charitable sector in Tandridge.  We hope that, despite these trying and uncertain times, 2019 will be a productive and rewarding year for your activities.  The quality of life for so many people in Tandridge is greatly improved by the contribution of local charities and volunteers.

Here at TVA, the team is looking forward to building on last year’s achievements in promoting and supporting volunteering throughout the district.  Alongside the work of our Volunteering Managers in matching potential volunteers to suitable opportunities, TVA will be running an active programme of events to provide networking opportunities, information exchange and a range of training for voluntary and community groups. Do let us know what would be of particular interest and value to your charity and volunteers.

At a time when finances seem ever tighter, we can also help in identifying potential funding sources for voluntary and community organisations through the Grantfinder database. TVA has invested in this fantastic resource because it is very easy to use, enabling local good causes to access funding where you are most likely to succeed. Give us a call on 01883 722593 or contact for further information, or to book a slot. We can offer support where needed.

The first of our popular Network Lunches (with talks on subjects of topical interest) this year is booked for Thursday 7th February, 12-2.30pm, so please note the date and watch for details.

With all best wishes for the coming year

Peter Damesick

Chair, TVA
