Kent Kindness is now offering a weekly Support with Studies Drop-In in Tunbridge Wells. This is in partnership with Tunbridge Wells Welcomes Refugees and we aim to offer help with English, Maths, and other school and college subjects to young refugees and asylum seekers, to help them to get the most out of their studies and to make the progress they need for success in our academic and vocational education systems.
Kent Kindness has, for by no means the first time, received a most generous donation from the Parish Church of St Mary’s, Goudhurst and Kilndown. St Mary’s parish has been one of our main supporters right from the start. We are extremely grateful to them for all their support, both financial and in terms of their belief in what we are doing and their unfailing encouragement. Thank you so much.
This is our new Kent Kindness Certificate of Participation, issued to boys when they leave the Reception Centre. It will be a positive recognition of the work they have done, and a reward to them for starting back on the path to education and development of skills. This idea has already gone down very well with the boys!
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!
Kent Kindness offers support and hope to young asylum seekers and refugees who are living in Kent. Our central project is to give them classes in life skills and basic English, but we are also involved in offering them a range of other educational, sporting and social opportunities.
