Leave RACDV a gift in your will

After you have taken care of your loved ones in your will, we hope you might consider leaving a gift to The Cottage Community. The donation can be as small or large as you like. If you would like to know more please call us on 01322 668 106 or email admin@thecottagecommunity.org.uk.


We need and love volunteers! Volunteers help ensure that The Cottage Community continues to provide a service to our elderly clients. Our volunteers tell us how much their lives are enriched by volunteering for The Cottage Community. 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@thecottagecommunity.org.uk or telephone 01322 668 106


If you want to organise a fundraising event let us know by emailing us at admin@thecottagecommunity.org.uk or telephoning 01322 668 106
