Volunteer for the Rainbow Centre
Who can volunteer?
The Rainbow Centre values diversity and encourages volunteers from all sections of the community.
You will need to be over 18 to volunteer with our client-facing services, but we sometimes have opportunities for under 18s too.
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 are currently looking for additional TRUSTEES find out more here.
We have a wide variety of volunteering opportunities across a range of services, so there is something for everyone.
- Rainbow Food Warehouse
- Homeless Support Service
- Rainbow Shop
- Family Contact Centre
- Rainbow Club
- Shepway Foodbank
- Folkestone Churches Winter Shelter
- Money Matters
- Hythe Pantry
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, helping people follow a budget, or 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.
