THE MEETING ROOM

Our Charity

The Meeting Room

We run 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 out goal is to continue being there to offer support and friendship.

Drop In Centres

Everyone is welcome to come along to our drop-in centres. You don't need a formal referral. 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.

Social Activities

We regularly arrange outings and social events for the people who attend the drop-in centres. Day trips will be to local places of interest such as Brighton, Chichester and Windsor. Outings will be hosted by our regular volunteers.

Fetcham Christmas


Each year we organise a traditional 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 Opportunities

No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted

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, by clicking the link below.

Financial Support

Helping Others

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. If you are able to offer financial support to The Meeting Room, either as a regular direct debit or one off donation, then please click the button below to be taken to our donation site.

Christmas

Christmas Day and Preparations

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. If you would like to help out, don't hesitate to contact us.
