Coronavirus Volunteer Group Form
In partnership with Ashford Volunteer Centre, Ashford Borough Council are keen to support as many volunteer groups and individuals as possible in order to create strong community spirit and help one another through these difficult times. We are doing this by promoting the work of local groups on our website so that residents can find new ways they can help others.
