Volunteer with us – we have so many roles to choose from

Published by Caroline, 21 Aug 2019

Have you got some free time?
Do you know someone else who has?

We’re looking for volunteers to help us with a range of jobs.
Making tea, phone calls, setting up a stall, working with our staff, driving, sending post, emails…the list really is endless for the tasks our volunteers do.

CEO Caroline Ford said: “We value them a great deal, so they are trained, supported and knitted into our staff, assisting and leading on various tasks and jobs.
If you can give some time each week, each month or every so often, do get in touch with us to find out more.”

The roles we particularly want volunteers for, are:

Online selling
We have so many donations of items and have had some success selling online, so would like to take this forward as a role. We’d like someone to take care of listing items on Ebay and other online sales sites, keep an eye on the sale and then arrange delivery/collection of the items.
It would be great to use this more modern fundraising tool!

Donor relations – based at Goodyer House, Rochester
Donor relations is all about liaison and communication with the people who give us money – businesses and individuals.
We like to make sure every donation is thanked and that our supporters are contacted at key times and know our news.
It’s a really exciting role that will be supported by us and plenty of guidance given.

General fundraising
We’re a charity, so always need fundraising…
We’d like people to organise events, run and support our events and other events run by our supporters.

Ad-hoc volunteers
We’d like to create a group of volunteers spread across Kent so that wherever we need a hand, we have someone local.

Weekend volunteers
We hold 11 bereavement support weekends each year and a number of workshops and always need help at them to ensure our families have what they need, feel welcome and looked after.
Full training is given for these weekends and ongoing support is offered too.
Most of our fundraising is undertaken to support these weekends, which give children and their families vital and often the first professional support for their bereavement.

Volunteering is on your terms – when you can help us and for the amount of time you have to spare, so do get in touch with us to find out more about our roles and what you can do for us!
