Description

1) We support people to find volunteering opportunities across Dover district, Folkestone & Hythe and Thanet, we share volunteering opportunities on behalf of volunteer-involving organisations (VIOs) i.e. charities, community groups and CICs operating in these areas. We often say we are like a job centre for volunteering. We also support VIOs by bringing them together for Networking and Knowledge sessions, and with bespoke best practice training and resources on the topic of volunteering. At the time of writing this listing, we also run two-in house projects to help alleviate loneliness and isolation, support health and wellbeing - and to support our local health services. 2) A Community Transport Service across Dover district, Folkestone & Hythe and Thanet, with volunteer drivers taking isolated older people who cannot use public transport to essential medical appointments - and where possible to social appointments. This is a membership service. We are always looking for new drivers across all areas. 3) A befriending service across Dover district, Folkestone & Hythe and Thanet. This is called the Good Neighbours Service and usually involves a volunteer befriender making a weekly visit to an isolated older person for tea and a chat. Please check our website to see which areas are taking external referrals and where we need volunteers.
