BY WORKING TOGETHER WE CAN TACKLE THE EFFECTS OF POVERTY ACROSS KENT
“Let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth" - 1 John 3: 18
Many churches and organisations are working hard to help people in the area who are facing the challenges that come with poverty. We can help by assisting you in setting up as a Place of Welcome, registering an Advocate or supporters for ACTS435 or advertising for volunteers for your project. Many organisations rely on volunteers to be able to give the help that is much needed. Below we will be listing information about organisations in the area, the work they do and the help they need. We know that when people get involved in helping others they can make a real difference to those in need and to their own lives as well.
If you are an organisation wanting to advertise for volunteers, please contact us to find out more.
