Here at Red Kite, we couldn't achieve everything that we do without our amazing volunteers. Our volunteers are often tenants that live in our homes. They make a positive difference in the community by helping to shape the services we provide.

Our volunteers have an important role in making sure that we remain truly tenant-led through everything that we do.

Our volunteering opportunities

We have a wide range of volunteering opportunities, from feeding back on new development plans, sitting on interview panels, and even becoming a Red Kite Champion. There's something to suit everyone depending on how you want to get involved, and how much time you want to spend with us.

Volunteering can help you learn new skills, gain experience and really help make a difference.
