Community wardens

Here to help

Community wardens help make stronger, safer communities.

Community wardens will try and help you and your community no matter what the issue. If they don't have the answer they will know someone who will.

Ways we help residents and communities

There's so many ways we can help, we aim to improve residents' quality of life and allow their communities to thrive. We want residents to feel safe, to support the elderly and vulnerable, and work with communities to foster a sense of cohesion and wellbeing.

Here's some examples of support we've provided in the community:

Community warden Paul Robertson visited an elderly lady who had been targeted by scammers. They persuaded her she needed a check and some maintenance on her solar panel system.

The caller convinced her the original installation company could not be trusted and assured her they would give her the best deal, and it would only cost her £2,000 for a 5 year contract.

The lady was understandably upset and described the high-pressure and convincing tactics the caller used before she wrote a cheque. Paul encouraged her to tell her family, who were very supportive, and will work with her to identify safeguards that can be put in place. Paul reported the scam to public protection.

Community warden Georgina Springall has been helping a Newington resident with their daily walk up and down the garden, as they can't go out because of lockdown.

Georgina noticed the resident struggled to get out the front door due to a large drop. She contacted councillor Richard Palmer and between them they organised for Swale Borough Council to install bars and steps outside the house.

Rural Kent is a brilliant organisation who run a pop-up cafe that visits rural areas, serving refreshments and also acting as an information hub, with a community warden present for advice.

Community warden for Herne and Broomfield, Mandy Quy-Verlander, went out and about with Kathy from Rural Kent to bring a little happiness to the residents.

The pop-up cafe has not been operating due to COVID-19, but Rural Kent wanted to show the community that they were thinking of them. They made some lovely goody bags including tea and coffee, delicious lemon drizzle cake, a red geranium, quiz sheets and useful information and contact numbers for the project and Community Wardens. Residents were thrilled to receive these goody bags and several said it had really made their day.

Siobhan MacKay and Jackie West, Sevenoaks & Tunbridge Wells Community Warden Team, responded to an urgent call for help from a vulnerable resident.

The elderly, vulnerable gentleman was distressed and had no electricity at his home. They immediately responded, and arrived to find an ambulance at the house - his wife had fallen and needed to go to hospital.

After paramedics had taken his wife to hospital, Jackie stayed to help the gentleman. She called his next of kin, social care and the utility providers. With the help of the community wardens, the services to his property were restored and this couple will get ongoing welfare checks.

Community support if you don't have a community warden

If you don't have a community warden in your area, there are other places you can go for help and support:

  • Contact the team leader for your area who will advise how we can support you.
  • For health and wellbeing support and advice read our One You Kent pages.
  • Go to the Kent Police website for more information about how the police can help your community.
  • Search this website for services provided by Kent County Council, such as libraries, adult social care and roads.
