Kettering Voluntary Network is a project of Groundwork Northamptonshire, supporting voluntary and community groups in Kettering.
Kettering Voluntary Network recruits potential volunteers for all sectors of the community and signposts them to local organisations or groups who need volunteers to help them with their work. Kettering Voluntary Network aims to support organisations in the voluntary, community and not for profit sector.
Kettering Voluntary Network provides a range of direct services to third sector organisations and works with them to support their activities through co-ordination, liaison, representation, advice and information.
Kettering Voluntary Network facilitates the Kettering Voluntary and Community Sector forum. Kettering Voluntary Network works in partnership with Corby Voluntary and Community Services to support the third sector in both boroughs including the outlying towns and villages.
The core functions of Kettering Voluntary Network include
- Start up development
