About us

For the past 40 years the Guildford Waterside Centre (GWC) has enabled charities, sports clubs and community groups an ability to share premises, share expenditure, share resources and work together to enrich the lives of others. In the last ten years, this has extended to further promoting health and well-being through the encouragement of participation in exercise and therapies.

The GWC is home to Wey Kayak Club, the Guildford branch of the British Sub-Aqua Club and the Samson Centre for Multiple Sclerosis plus usage by the University of Surrey Canoe Club, Guildford Mountaineering Club and more infrequent use by community groups such as the Guildford Lions Club.

At Rio, 2016 Liam Heath won an Olympic gold medal for GB and Anne Dickins an Olympic Gold medal for GB in the Paralympics. Both use the GWC. This only serves to highlight that the GWC is where able-bodied and disabled people come together as one with incredible results.

and now the Samson Centre for Multiple Sclerosis needs our help to build a new oxygen therapy suite and counselling/lecture rooms
