Can you help support our Charity?

Volunteers are vital to Ferring Country Centre, playing a pivotal role. We rely on their skill and commitment, they promote our Centre and raise funds for us.

Your support is always needed and gratefully received. By volunteering you really can make a positive difference to the lives of others and have fun too!

Whether you can spare a couple of hours a month, or want to commit to several days a week, we would like to hear from you. We need help in many areas. You may have a particular hobby, interest or profession that you feel may benefit us and our clients. Perhaps you would like to help with fundraising, assist with general administration duties, work in our Garden Centre or Riding Therapy Unit or teach a particular subject in our training programme.

We always require volunteers to help in our Garden Centre on Saturdays and Sundays and people with an interest in horses that can help on the Riding Therapy Unit, especially youngsters who would be willing to spare some time on a regular basis at weekends.

Volunteers on our RTU get the opportunity to ride and have lessons from our instructors.

Volunteering isn't just about ‘doing good'. It's a great opportunity for you:

  • to get more involved with your local community
  • to make new friends from all walks of life
  • to develop through new experiences and challenges
  • to use your existing skills or learn new ones that may
  • to benefit your working life
  • to gain satisfaction from helping others

We are also happy to form corporate partnerships with the business community and see that building links by working in conjunction will not only raise awareness of our charity but also create invaluable CSR & PR opportunities for those companies involved.

There are so many ways in which you can make a diference.

We are currently looking for volunteers who have experience in policy writing that may wish to dedicate a few days to helping us review our policies. If you can help, please email Sam on
