VOLUNTEERS

We are very proud of the long term commitment our Volunteers give us at the Chiltern Centre.
Some of our volunteers received care from the Chiltern Centre themselves in the past.
They act as positive role models to the young people currently in our care.

OUR FUNDRAISERS

Each year our team of fundraisers has to fundraise £200,000 in order to keep the Chiltern Centre open.
