About The Meeting Room 
The Meeting Room runs daytime drop in centres for homeless, socially isolated and vulnerable people living within our community. We offer them a warm, safe and friendly environment where they are made to feel welcome and have a chance to eat, relax and socialise.  A hot nourishing mid-day meal sustains the body, while talking, playing games and other activities help to break through isolation.  By listening to clients and gaining their trust, we try to help them by signposting them to agencies or professional bodies for help.  We intervene to prevent homelessness or support people in other ways relevant to their needs.   Results don't always happen overnight, or sometimes at all, but our goal is to continue being there to offer support and friendship.

Drop in Centres
Social Activites
Fetcham Christmas 
Everyone is welcome to come along to our drop-in centres.   You don't need a formal referal.  A hot and nutritious meal is provided free of charge to everyone who attends.  Our experienced volunteers are there to chat and may be able to help you with any problems you may have.  
We regularly arrange outings and social events for the people who attend the drop-in centers.   Day trips will be to local places of interest such as Brighton, Chichester, and Windsor.    Outings will be hosted by our regular volunteers. 
Each year we organise a traiditional Christmas Day at Fetcham Village Hall.   Graham Peddie has been organising this for over 15 years and, supported by our wonderful volunteers we are able to welcome over 80 isolated people.  If you are interested in attending or volunteering please contact us.  
How you can help
Volunteer :   The Meeting Room relies heavily on the
support of our volunteers.  Volunteers help us run the
drop-in centres, provide support through cooking and
also share their skills and crafts with those who attend.  
Please contact us if you would like to find out more. 
 
Financial support :  Although we keep costs to a minimum
we do need financial support to cover rent, food costs,
mini bus hire for outings and ad hoc costs to support our clients.  In 2016 we are also looking to employ a part time support worker to offer further assistance to our clients.         If you are able to offer financial support, either
as a regular direct debit or one off donation then please
get in touch.  To donate to The Meeting Room click on the button here..........
 

Christmas Day :  To run the Fetcham Christmas we need support with food, gifts for clients and Christmas entertainment.  We also need a team of volunteers to
prepare and serve food as well as serving refreshments
and chatting to those who attend.
