The Kent Voluntary Sector Emergencies Group

The Kent Resilience Forum is proud of its relationship with the voluntary community. In 2015 the KRF was recognised by the Emergency Planning Society for the work of the voluntary community by way of an award.

The voluntary community have access to a wide range of skills and expertise which can be invaluable when dealing with an emergency. The KRF has developed the Kent Voluntary Sector Emergency Group (KVSEG) to ensure that we can build relationships with the voluntary sector and access their services during incidents.

If you would like to get involved please get in touch, or talk directly to the group you want to get involved with. A full list of the voluntary organisations that the KRF works with is available below...
