Membership of Kingston Voluntary Action is open to any voluntary organisation or community group providing a service, support and advice to the community in Kingston upon Thames.

Although the resources of KVA are available to both member and non-member organisations, we rely upon our members to reflect the needs and views of their specialist concern.

We aim to make our membership as representative as possible, embracing the well established and the newly emerging voluntary organisations.

Affiliated organisations receive regular e-bulletins to keep them informed about developments in the sector.

Your organisation will be included in the Directory of Voluntary Organisations. Please ensure we have the correct directory description and contact details for publication.

Affiliated organisations can also nominate a representative to vote at the Annual General Meeting and to stand for election onto KVA Management Committee.

To become an Affiliated Member, complete and return the Affiliation Form, along with the fee of £18.00.
