We’ve moved to Farnham!

View of 24 West Street

As you know, we have been supporting children and adults with dyslexia since 1971, and after 50 years based in Frensham village, we have now moved our Centre to 24 West Street in the heart of Farnham.

This is the beginning of an exciting new era for the charity; our in-person dyslexia services will be more accessible to those who don’t drive, and we will be more visible on busy West Street.

Our CEO Andy Cook says, ‘We are very excited to be moving to Farnham town centre and looking forward to helping even more people with dyslexia. We will be offering all our tried and tested services to individuals with dyslexia, as well as to schools, teachers and workplaces, and will very much enjoy being part of the Farnham community. This is an exciting new chapter for the charity as we embark on the next stage of our mission to remove barriers for people with dyslexia so that they can maximise the positive attributes that dyslexia brings.’

The new Centre is in a lovely Grade 2-listed Georgian house once lived in by the architect Harold Falkner who had a profound influence on the architecture of the town. You will find us between The Wheatsheaf pub and the Adult Education Centre, within walking distance of local bus routes and Farnham railway station.

We’ll be holding an Open Evening at 6pm on Wednesday 29 June, as an opportunity for anyone to pop in and see the charity’s new home. If you would like to come along, simply email events@helenarkell.org.uk to let us know.
