Kibble’s Voluntary Service (KVS) offers a diverse range of volunteering opportunities from spending valuable time with a young person, to helping with the rewarding disability karting programmes at The Experience.
KVS has many links within the local community and beyond. The service plays an active part in the Volunteer Managers Forum for Renfrewshire, and also takes a lead role in a steering group charged with promoting good practice in volunteer management. KVS attends community conferences and participates in good practice events throughout the year. We are a key partner in Zero Waste Scotland’s Renfrewshire programme. In June 2016 KVS was awarded the Volunteer Friendly Award for good practice and our Volunteer Co-ordinator was asked to train as an assessor for the award. This was a unique offer and one that we were proud to accept.
New Volunteer Opportunities for 2017
Our exciting leisure and hospitality venue – The Experience in Hillington Park – has launched a range of charity
programmes which include fundraising events for charities, team building for third sector organisations and other good causes, and a volunteering initiative. Volunteers can get involved in many different areas, including helping with the STEAM+ Education programme, fundraising, social media, and assisting with accessible karting. There are unlimited opportunities available and volunteers will be working towards the common goal of making a real difference to people in the local community.
People volunteer for many different reasons. For some it’s the chance to give something back to the local community and make a difference, for others it’s the opportunity to meet new people or gain new skills. Whatever your reason, Kibble is a great place to volunteer!
