Volunteer for the Rainbow Centre
Who can volunteer?
The Rainbow Centre values diversity and encourages volunteers from all sections of the community.
Our only restriction is that you will need to be over 18 to volunteer with us.
How much time will I have to give?
When you apply to volunteer we can tell you about the volunteering vacancies we have available and as a volunteer, you can choose something that meets the level of commitment you can afford to give.
What volunteer opportunities do you have?
We have a wide variety of volunteering opportunities across a range of services, so there is something for everyone.
- Rainbow Pre-school
- Rainbow Food Warehouse
- Homeless Support Service
- Rainbow Shop
- Family Contact Centre
- Rainbow Club
- Shepway Foodbank
- Folkestone Churches Winter Shelter
Depending on the service for which you volunteer, you could be manning our reception, handing out soup to homeless people, serving in the shop, helping children with activities, sorting food and even making the tea.
All volunteering roles will require references and some also require a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. This will be completed at no cost to you.
How do I get involved?
Alternatively, you can contact us by email, phone or feel free to call into the Rainbow Centre to pick up an application form.
We are open weekdays 9am– 5pm.
