Volunteer opportunities


We have various opportunities for volunteers to assist us with our work. These are usually administrative roles, such as updating database entries and mailing lists, but can also include research, and helping to manage our social media accounts.

As a volunteer for KVA, you would get the chance to learn more about Kingston's VCSE (voluntary, community and social enterprise) sector, and make a valuable contribution to the work that we do.

Click here to see a description of a database volunteer role we are currently recruiting for. We are also seeking volunteers to assist us with our social media accounts (Twitter & Facebook); with sourcing & promoting funding opportunities (using Grantfinder); and with updating our social prescribing website, Connected Kingston.

If you would like to volunteer your services in any of these areas, please complete our application form and email it to us at admin@kva.org.uk. We look forward to hearing from you!

Please note that unfortunately we are not able to offer volunteering opportunities to DofE students at this time.
