A big helping hand at Kent Volunteers

There are big opportunities for people looking to volunteer in the community of Kent following the successful launch of a volunteering initiative by the Kent Lieutenancy.

Established with KM Media Group back in March, Kent Volunteers helps volunteers find the right kind of placement and brings them easily and safely together.

Kent Volunteers is also an ideal platform for charities and community organisations seeking out the right kind of people interested in volunteer work.

There has been a very positive response so far with 160 volunteering opportunities opening up for community work, retail and trading, administration, events, garden and maintenance as well as driving and transport.  

“There are fantastic opportunities for everyone at this website,” said Kent Volunteers Project Manager Jonathan Goodman.

“Some organisations maybe on the lookout for administration volunteers, others may want marketing or back office support, so there really is something for everyone.

“Volunteer work really varies so we always like to encourage people wanting to help to perhaps try something new. They could develop some new skills and learn something along the way.”

Charities and organisations also seeking volunteers can also benefit from submitting positions at Kent Volunteers especially with volunteer work in desperate need across the country.

Recent government figures reveal that there are over 170,000 registered charities in the UK, out of which over 90% have no paid staff.
