Leatherhead Swans provides sport and recreation activities for adults with disabilities. We are known as the Happy Club with around 60-70 disabled people coming together to enjoy sport and leisure time activities each week.

Would you to like to part of this Happy Club and help make our weekly sessions enjoyable for our local disabled community?  We are based out of the Leatherhead Leisure Centre

Volunteers are required to support disabled members  in various sport and recreational activities which include Boccia, Kurling, Swimming, Bowls, Bingo, singing and dancing and many other clubroom type activities.  Sometimes it may be that some of our members just like to come down and have a chat over a cup of tea.

You choose which activity and how often you are able to support.

All our Volunteers say they feel very rewarded at the end of the evening and our members are always appreciative of the support they receive.
