Volunteering with us is quality

The REVAMP quality mark has been awarded to Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust to show we are at the forefront of excellent volunteer management in  the county.

Alex Krutnix, from the Canterbury and Herne Bay Volunteer Centre, said: “We were impressed by the quality of the volunteering experience, the support in place plus the very through induction and training programme.”

REVAMP was developed by volunteer centres in Kent; it shows that an organisation offers meaningful and well-supported opportunities to potential volunteers.

The value volunteers add to our teams caring for patients was highlighted at an event to thank 500-plus people who regularly give up their time to help out.

Last year, our volunteer army contributed more than 36,000 hours supporting patients, carers and staff.
