Volunteer for us

We're so grateful to our amazing volunteers who give their time and use their experience and skills to make a difference to homeless and vulnerable people in Kent.

We’ve got volunteers working in every area of our organisation – from outreach and rough sleeper support, to accommodation services, education and training, and community inclusion and befriending.

“Every one of our volunteers is active and involved and their support is integral to our work as a charity,” says our volunteer coordinator Jess Antoniou.

“People come to us for a variety of reasons – some want to gain valuable work experience in the homelessness sector, others are keen to develop their existing skills, or be part of a team that gives something back to the community and makes a real difference to vulnerable people’s lives."

Depending on the activity, appropriate induction and training will be provided to prepare volunteers for their role. Some roles may require you to have a DBS check.
