Helping the community

In partnership with Ashford Volunteer Centre, Ashford Borough Council is keen to support as many volunteer groups and individuals as possible in order to create a strong community spirit and help one another through these difficult times. We are doing this by promoting the work of local groups on our website so that residents can find new ways they can help others.

If you would like to have your work promoted on our website then please complete our online form.

For the latest information on Coronavirus, including information on Ashford Borough Council, Government and NHS services and support, visit the Ashford Borough Council website.

We provide a range of services, training opportunities and a friendly volunteer service, helping those who wish to volunteer to find opportunities, and supporting local organisations who wish to find volunteers
