VOLUNTEER FOR INVOLVE
Whether you are looking for a more active role in the community, want to meet new people or want to improve your professional skills, we have the perfect opportunities to meet your volunteering needs. There a variety of roles you can choose from, just follow the links below to see the individual role descriptions.
Volunteer with older people
Get involved with our Befriending services for older people, visiting or calling isolated individuals who may not have spoken to anyone in days, often weeks. Befriending is a highly sociable role and a great way of putting your people skills to good use.
Become a volunteer driver
Help with driving physically frail and older members of the community to the hospital, supermarket or wherever they need to be, who otherwise would not be able to make the journey with public transport. Volunteer drivers offer an essential service that helps older people keep their independence and reduces social isolation.
Involve’s Community Transport service relies on the support of volunteers to help people who are unable to use public transport, whether this is due to a disability, frailty, illness or an injury.
Volunteer at our Postural Stability Classes
Help older people at our postural stability classes. These classes help to prevent falls by strength and core exercises and also help older people know what to do if they have a fall.
Volunteer in our Involve Shop
The Involve Shop isn't your average charity shop. As well as selling a wide range of locally produced arts and crafts we also run weekly workshops and knitting and sewing groups. Find our shop next to the bus station at The Mall, Maidstone. For this role you will need to have a good knowledge of services in the local area as one of the main parts of the role is signposting. You will be given full training about Involve and it's services, but you will also be able to think on your feet to refer visitors to the right organisations and services.
