Service in action

 

King’s developed #ContinuingToServe (#CTS) as a university-wide approach to bringing together, strengthening and celebrating the many ways in which the King’s community responded to COVID-19. As we focus our attention on welcoming our students to King’s, we have brought #CTS to a close.

While #CTS as a response to COVID-19 has come to an end, we know that our students, staff and alumni will continue to serve society in imaginative and meaningful ways. To discover how you can volunteer – either remotely or locally to you – or donate items, see further down this page.

Find out more about how our students, staff and alumni have supported our local, national and international communities during this challenging time by reading ‘Our stories’.

If you have a story to share or a query about volunteering, please contact service@kcl.ac.uk

If would like to find out more about how we work with and support our local communities in London, please visit the London webpages. If you have a query related to our work in London, please contact london@kcl.ac.uk

Remember that the main priority when volunteering during the COVID-19 pandemic should be to keep yourself and others safe. Before volunteering you should read carefully the government guidelines for wherever you are. You can read the UK government’s guidelines on how to help safely here.
