Call for Community Caretakers

Thursday, 8 November 2018
Would you like to help make a difference to your local community? Dover District Council has launched its Community Caretaker project and is calling for residents to get involved.

 A Community Caretaker is a local resident who is able to volunteer even just an hour of their spare time to help with anything that benefits the local community where they live. This could include litter picking, painting, planting, sweeping, snow clearing and basic DIY. 

Community Caretakers will be supported by DDC, through the Community Safety Partnership, and will be able to access tools, materials, equipment and protective clothing through a new network of DDC community stores, strategically located throughout the district. As part of the scheme Community Caretakers will be registered by DDC to use the equipment and facilities for local projects.

Cllr MJ Holloway, Cabinet Member for Community Services, said: "DDC is excited to launch this new community scheme to help residents get involved in their local area and take pride in where they live. This will help to make a difference to communities, in addition to the extensive range of quality services that DDC and partner agencies continue to provide."
