If you are from a charity, community or voluntary group, and want help to use social media better, then please search for a surgery and sign up for one. If you want to volunteer to help at a surgery (and experience some #socialglow) please do the same. If you just want to run one surgery on a voluntary basis, register now. If you want to run several surgeries and measure their impact contact us.
