Membership

Members of Circular Dorking

Working together to create a regenerative and distributive local economy

Our members fall into various categories; local businesses, community organisations and those we collaborate with to exchange ideas and share information.

Small steps with big aims

Some members are already doing incredible things to work towards and bolster a sustainable local economy. Others are very much at the starting point of a journey to become more sustainable. The common thread is that we all have a desire to improve and work together as a community. Collaboration is not only vital, it also enables us to learn from each other and share ideas.

There is an obvious need to strive towards net zero and care more about our planet, but there is also a need to care about the people around us and protect social foundations. To look after health and wellbeing, protect the vulnerable, help those in need and create a local voice.

We are a mixed bunch, but we share common goals! Browse through the list below and see what our members are involved in. Use their services, share what they are doing, volunteer or join in!

You can filter the list using these options.
