I loved my experience at LHA Torquay House, the girls' rooms are spacious and comfortable. It is close to many tourist areas and good transport connections. I recommend it, Laura and all the other members of the Torquay team are incredible. The work is good and the hours are respected, as are the days off. I certainly hope to volunteer here again. A big hug for everyone!!!

My experience at Torquay House was amazing. The place is great, with easy access to public transport and close to Notting Hill. In addition, the volunteer girls had their own bathroom and kitchen, which is wonderful. The place has several places to sit, read a book or rest. During the 6 weeks I spent at Torquay, I felt like home since my first day. I've met wonderful people that I'm already missing. The tasks are fair, and you have plenty of time to do other activities you enjoy. Shekita, Laura, Albor, Nayara and all my friends I made in this time, thank you so much for everything <3

Torquay House was one of my best volunteering experiences. Tasks were easy, with a varied weekly schedule and respect for our time and days off. Everything matched their profile, including meals provided in a nearby building. I met people worldwide, improved my English, and shared moments with the Torquay team, which were highlights. Also, it was easy to access London's attractions. Laura and Albor, thank you so much, first for trusting me and second for the improvements I've gained during this time. Thank you to all the friends I've made in this home away from home. ❤️
