Volunteering is when someone gives their time, skills and energy to benefit their community, the environment or someone outside their immediate family. Volunteering is unpaid and must be a choice freely made by the individual. 

Our Volunteer Centres serve the communities of Sevenoaks, Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells, Edenbridge and the surrounding areas by:

  • Promoting and encouraging volunteering, community activity and social action
  • Recruiting, placing and supporting people who want to volunteer
  • Supporting Volunteer Involving Organisations
