Want to help?

With a strong team of committed volunteers Caring Hands is able to do so much more for those in need. We always need a variety of skill-sets and are flexible in creating the right position for you.

If you have some spare time, come and volunteer for us. There’s all sorts of way you could help:

Why do you volunteer?

Ami -

I volunteer at Caring Hands because I feel like I can make a difference here. You don't get that anywhere else and people really appreciate it. I want to help people and here I can do it so directly in such a meaningful way, offering food, drinks and support. There's a huge amount of satisfaction in doing that.

Volunteers collectively give over ten thousand hours to Caring Hands each year in making a difference in the lives of homeless people in Medway.

My favourite moments are when some of the younger girls who come in ask to just have a chat and offload, because there aren't that many people they can talk to in that way. I appreciate knowing that they are getting something really meaningful out of my time, even if it's just through having someone listen.

I didn’t expect the staff and guests to have such good relationships and mutual respect, or to enjoy myself as much as I do. If I turn out to be anything like some of the volunteers I’ve met when I’m older, I’d be extremely proud. The best part for me was knowing that just offering a few hours of my time a week can be the difference between a guest having a good or bad day’
