Kent Community Foundation - Adapting services during Covid19 & Strategic Recovery Grant

The Kent Community Foundation is part of a national network of 46 Community Foundations, all committed to improving the lives of local people and communities, particularly the most vulnerable, isolated and disadvantaged.
In 2020, the Kent Community Foundation awarded Mental Health Resource a grant towards the costs of adapting our services during the Covid19 pandemic which helped us adapt our services during Covid19, to support the ongoing needs of our clients at this challenging and difficult time.
In January 2022, we were also awarded a grant from their Strategic Recovery grant to help us ensure greater diversity in our funding streams, so that we can reach and support more people with their mental health.
The Kent Community Foundation also helped us secure a grant from the Glenn and Phyllisa Earle Fund of £2500 to support our out of hours service, currently running via telephone only on a Sunday from 3-6pm.  The objectives of The Glenn and Phyllisa Earle Fund, set up in 2011, are to address social disadvantage, help disadvantaged young people to achieve their full potential and to work to promote, support and engage vulnerable people. This funding will help us continue to provide this out of hours service at a time when people need to talk more than ever.
