Welcome to Voluntary Action within Kent's website!

Welcome to the website of Voluntary Action within Kent. We are delighted and proud to announce that 2014 is VAWK’s 50th Anniversary year of serving the community. Over the last 50 years VAWK has grown from strength to strength; we continue to support and develop the voluntary and community sector across Kent, delivering services countywide for children and young people, people living with a disability and older people. We are committed to promote, develop and facilitate social action, supporting independence and empowering communities in our 50th year.

 

 
 

Voluntary Action within Kent project Safe wins “Inspire The House” Award from the national charity KidsCount.

The award comes from the national charity Kids Count.  Kids Count have created this special award, made by Members of Parliament to demonstrate their commitment and support of the third sector whose outstanding achievements might otherwise go unnoticed.  

VAWK Chief Executive Caroline Shaw said “we are delighted to have won the Community Group award which recognises those who by example, track record and commitment have signalled that responsibility lies within their own community to protect and foster the well-being and development of young people”. 

“The Safe project is very close to our hearts and was set up in October 2011 in memory of James Naylor, a young man from Brenchley, Kent, who tragically took his own life at the age of 23. “

“The project initially sought to raise awareness of youth suicide and the impact on those touched by suicide.  The project has grown to support young people within schools to raise awareness of mental health issues and to deliver outreach support and activities.

Offering professional support and training to the young peer mentors, Safe’s main objective is to let young people in Kent know that they are not alone, that they have a voice and that there is support to help them with a variety of mental health & wellbeing issues.”
