Hope and Voice was founded in 2009 as a seed of an idea after the founder recovered from a debilitating illness and was launched in 2012.
Hope and Voice is a Community Interest Company and it operates under four arms:
1. As a Business
2. As a Social Club
3. As a Ministry
4. As A Charity
Business - we run seminars and training workshops; we offer one to one coaching and group coaching and mentoring support.
Social club - the aim of the club is to bring women to come together to socialise and network and establish new friendships. It is another way of bringing people together who are lonely and for busy people to take time out.
Ministry - provides support and healing to those who are hurting.
Charity - we support other charities and engage in fundraising activities. We also participate in running international children’s project on education and health. We would first of all embark on a running a pilot library project.
We intend to roll out our services to individuals and community groups within Surrey and borders with particular emphasis to improve the mental health of certain vulnerable individuals and groups such as ‘Young Single Mothers’, the unemployed, individuals living in poverty and the BAME communities.
Our aim is to use a holistic approach to maximize health, empower, inspire, bring emotional healing and rebuild lives through the use of workshops, counselling, personal development training programmes including business support and personal coaching.
We are a member of the Surrey Minority Ethnic Forum (SMEF). SMEF works with the BAME communities and community groups across Surrey, providing support, training and helps signpost where and how to access services within Surrey. We are a ‘Victim Support Champion’ for SMEF and had participated in running a ‘Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adult’ workshop.
