Dear Colleague

Volunteer Support Warden Scheme

Since our official launch of the full scheme we have been actively recruiting volunteers for a number of Town and Parish Councils, we now have 6 new VSW’s who are just finishing their training bringing our total to 9 overall. The recruitment has been a slow process however this has allowed us to select quality rather than quantity.

The scheme is proving to be a success, so knowing how much of a difference that the VSWs can make in supporting our local communities, we are going to relaunch our recruitment campaign over the autumn and winter months and would like to offer your Council the opportunity to participate in the full scheme.

The attached prospectus has been prepared to assist you with your decision making and sets out the benefits of the VSW scheme as well as the costs involved, including the costs if Local Councils wish to participate in clusters or share a VSW.

If you would like to participate, please contact Paul Linstead, Area Manager for the Kent Community Warden Service at . Please note that, to enable budgets to be properly planned and management arrangements put in place, expressions of interest must be definite rather than conditional or provisional.

If you have questions or would like to know more before making a decision, please feel free to contact Paul Linstead, who would be more than happy to help answer any queries you may have.

Yours sincerely

Paul Linstead
