This is following the Hub’s closure in December as a result of significant damage caused to its previous location at 131 High Street by a fire that started in an adjacent building.

Please come along any time between 10am and 4pm to our opening event on Monday 13 February, at which you will be able to find out about the support offered by the Hub, and meet some of the organisations that provide drop-in sessions there.

A few words from our very own Richard Davy, SILC's CEO, on the STAMP App:

“I am hoping I can interest you in a new development that SILC is supporting. The STAMP mobile app aims to provide a link between service providers in Surrey and people who can benefit from the services and support they offer.
The app has been developed to enable service providers to easily share information about their services with potential customers.
I think this new app will provide a great way of offering wider choice to people in Surrey and also provide for a ‘more level playing field’ when it comes to people being aware of the wide range of services and opportunities on offer.”
