We are Involve Kent – Together unleashing the power of giving to improve lives
Involve exists to support, enable and value giving in all its forms. This includes caring, volunteering, peer support, skill sharing, giving views to shape policy, social and community action, philanthropy and corporate social responsibility. We improve wellbeing and reduce isolation by bringing people together to help and support each other, recognising and enhancing everyone’s potential to improve their lives and the lives of others.
Our three core areas;
We improve the health, wellbeing and independence of Carers. We support Carers in their caring role; enabling people to provide unpaid support to a family member or friend who could not manage without help. We value and enhance the contribution Carers make to society by giving their time and support to others.
We improve the health, wellbeing and independence of older people by bringing people together. We facilitate and develop volunteering to provide practical support, information and advice, leisure, learning, health, wellbeing and social activities for older people. We value and enhance the contribution older people make to society by sharing their experience, wisdom, time and skills.
