Volunteering at Kingston Carers' Network
Carers spend their time improving the lives of others.
Can you spare some of your time to improve theirs?
Kingston Carers' Network volunteering project provides support for the organisation and allows us to increase the services we can offer our carers and help raise awareness of carers' issues.
We have volunteers giving their time helping with outings, support groups, counselling services, office support and a variety of one-off activities. The Young Carers also benefit from volunteers helping out with the drop-in sessions and activities.
We value the contribution that our volunteers make to our projects and want them to enjoy being part of Kingston Carers' Network.
Benefits of volunteering
There are many reasons why people volunteer, but here are a few of the positive impacts that volunteering can have:
- Contributing to providing an essential service and help make a difference to local carers
- Sharing your skills and enthusiasm
- Developing new skills
- Meeting new people
- Doing something new and different
- Enhance your CV
- Influence career changes
- Having fun!
Don't just take our word for it, read what some of our volunteers said about their experiences.
