We need and love volunteers! Volunteers help ensure that RACDV continues to provide a service to our elderly clients. Our volunteers tell us how much their lives are enriched by volunteering for RACDV. By volunteering you can make friends, share your experience and skills with others, learn new skills or simply gain confidence in getting back in a work environment. You can volunteer as: 

  • Escorts on minibuses
  • Charity shop staff in Swanley
  • Care helpers at our Cottage Day Centre
  • Handyman/woman

To find out more please email admin@racdv.org.uk or telephone 01322 668106


If you want to organise a fundraising event let us know by emailing us at ceo@racdv.org.uk or telephoning 01322 666448. One of the easiest ways to get sponsorship is by setting up a fundraising page to benefit Rural Age Concern Darent Valley on BT mydonate. You can do this by clicking the box below.
