We’re better together.

Latest information from the Government about the Coronavirus (Covid-19)


The personal benefits of volunteering are huge and can range from helping you to meet new people, keeping you active while unemployed, helping you build up new areas of your C.V., giving you a good reference and much more besides. If you are interested in volunteering please contact us.

We define volunteering as any activity that involves spending time, unpaid, doing something that aims to benefit the environment or someone (individuals or groups). Volunteering must be a choice freely made by each individual. If you are interested in volunteering please contact us.

What We Do

We aim to support, promote and develop volunteering opportunities within the Canterbury District. If you are a local charity, a voluntary or community group or not for profit organisation, a Public Sector organisation or Private Sector organisation, and are seeking volunteers, please contact us.


Virtual volunteering project

Give as you Live

Canterbury and Herne Bay Volunteer Centre is a non-profit organisation and to keep afloat during this time of crisis, we need your help.

Donate through Give as you Live Donate

Although we have ceased some of our current operations, we continue working on finding volunteers for organisations and places for volunteers, either traditional and virtual volunteers. There are lots of people seeking volunteering at the moment so now’s the chance to recruit people who are willing, able and will almost certainly be around post lockdown.
