Advice and Guidance with Medway Voluntary Action


For many years, MVA has offered advice and guidance to other charities in Medway with the aim to support them in their drive to empower Medway communities to come together to help improve their lives and solve problems that are important within their communities. It can take the shape of guidance around subjects such as appropriate structures, governance, income generation, operational, amongst a load of other areas.

This support has been provided by Neville Dack before he moved on to pastures new at the end of 2017. He did this work initially just through one to one support, but over time he built up a wealth of information which has been stored on our website:


Since he left, we have enlarged even further the resource library.

So if you are in need of help, as a first port of call, please visit our website


MVA also realised that while many people are happy to find solutions to their problems by using the website, this does not always answer the problem, therefore MVA recruited Steve Kemp, who joined MVA on 4 June 2018 as Business Development Officer. Steve has worked in the voluntary sector for over 25 years. For many of those years, he has worked in the Social Housing sector in a variety of roles, including Chief Executive and Interim Chief Executive of London Housing Associations, and Company Secretary of two other Housing Associations. He has also formed a Community Interest Company and a Community Benefit Society, as well as assisting the formation of a Charitable Incorporated Organisation. He therefore brings a wealth of knowledge to MVA.

Part of Steve’s role at MVA is to provide the advice and guidance to the other charities in Medway. (‘The New Neville’). Therefore if you cannot find your answer to your query on our website, Steve will be more than happy to assist. Please contact him, either by phone or e-mail; where he will either help you there and then, or alternatively make an appointment to meet to help find a solution:

Phone:01634 812850

Mobile:07983 179553

Sadly, due to the restrictions in funding, MVA is only able to provide Steve’s guidance for free for a total of one hour per subject per organisation. Thereafter there will need to be a charge of £25 per hour.
When we first give advice and guidance, we will ask you to sign an agreement which reflects your understanding of this, which will remain in force for a period of 12 months.
