Shepway Volunteer Centre has been running since 1976, is a registered charity, unconnected to any statutory body, and is governed by a Constitution. The primary task of the Volunteer Centre is to pair volunteers with a charity which will best use their skills and provide an opportunity which interests them. Becoming a volunteer is not just about giving - most volunteers find that they get alot more out of it than they were expecting. We also run a Befriending Scheme, a Community Transport Scheme, a Gardening Scheme and a Memory cafe and Social club.
