Kent Kindness involvement with educational and informational projects

In addition to the work we do in the reception centre, Kent Kindness is involved with a number of projects in the world of education and information,  often in partnership with other organisations and groups.

Some examples:

  • Producing and piloting a course aimed at the gentle relief of the distressing symptoms of trauma – the particularity of the course is that it is for those with only a relatively simple knowledge of English.
  • Working on printed material explaining the basic life skills needed to live in the UK (the asylum process, health care, basic rules of courtesy etc).
  • Setting up an educational drop-in “clinic” to support young refugees and asylum seekers in their school and college courses.

Donations via our website

Now that Kent Kindness is fully set up with an online giving facility, it’s great to find that it’s being used – at the date of writing, kind people have donated over £400 (including Gift Aid) during the month of December alone.  We’re truly very grateful for your gifts which enable us to extend the support we give to the young people who need your help.

Thank you to everyone who sent us a donation!
