Provide one-to-one counselling support for adult carers

People volunteer with us for a number of reasons, but they all have one thing in common: by giving their time they are helping to improve the lives of carers in Kingston. A carer is someone who is providing support, unpaid, to a friend or relative who has a disability, long term illness, mental health problem or substance misuse issue. The Young Carers' Project supports carers aged 5 -18.

Volunteering with young carers:

Interested in volunteering with young people? We have both flexible and regular volunteering opportunities at our youth groups and holiday activities for children aged 5-18. We also have a one-to-one mentoring programme. 

 

Volunteering with adult carers:

If you enjoy working with adults, why not consider lending a hand 'ad hoc' at our outings for adult carers or at one of our monthly support groups?

Admin volunteering:

Prefer to lend a hand behind the scenes? Our admin volunteers keep things running smoothly, either from home or at our Tolworth office.

At Kingston Carers’ Network we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults. We expect all volunteers to share this commitment. Safer recruitment practice and background checks will be undertaken before any role is offered.
