A New Strategic Recovery Fund For Kent

A new Strategic Recovery Fund from Kent County Council and administered through Kent Community Foundation is now open for grants of between £5,000 and £10,000




Kent Community Foundation is administering a new Strategic Recovery Fund on behalf of Kent County Council to help organisations across Kent adapt to the post COVID-19 “new normal”


Josephine McCartney, Chief Executive, Kent Community Foundation, said, “We are delighted to be able to distribute this funding to organisations across Kent.  The Kent County Council Strategic Recovery Fund will support organisations to plan for a sustainable future by providing funding to precure external expert advice on finance, fundraising, marketing and communication and website development as well as training to upskill existing staff.   We know that the charitable sector in Kent needs help to start thinking about how they can survive the long tail of COVID, and this funding has come at exactly the right time.    We want to thank KCC for this forward-thinking approach to helping the sector recover.”
