Why Us?

  • One to one, at your own pace – unlike many other courses, ours are only on a one to one basis.
  • At your own pace – we will be guided by you and how readily you feel you can absorb information.
  • FREE – there is no course tuition fee for the first half hour. After that we ask for a donation to the centre of whatever you can afford.
  • In your own home or office – if you are not able to come to us at the Volunteer Centre Sue will come to you at home or your office if you live in or near Uckfield (charge applies).
  • Experienced – we have taught a variety of age groups, from students in their 20’s to retired folk in their 90’s!

Sessions are run on an hourly basis. One hour at a time is usually enough! There is no set timescale, so you don’t need to book a block of sessions unless you want to. If you only want to book a one-off session, that’s fine.

A FREE introductory session (only a £5 donation requested – or more if you wish!) is available at Uckfield Volunteer Centre any Thursday from 1-4pm. Booking is essential.
