Employability Skills and Enterprise
Why we need your help
Help support Employability, Skills and Enterprise in Kent & Medway
Projects which raise the aspirations and increase the skills and opportunities of people who are far from the labour market.
The aim of the Employment, Skills and Enterprise theme is to make a real difference to the lives of people who are far from the labour market. The theme supports projects working with young people/ NEETs, young parents, ex-offenders, ex-forces, those with financial barriers and those with learning disabilities, mental health issues or physical disabilities. We look for projects that provide accredited training, apprenticeships, meaningful work experience and life skills/employment skills workshops for the disadvantaged. The theme supports strategic projects which aim to prevent young people from becoming NEETs.
Giving through our themed programmes
Our themed programmes are designed for anyone wishing to donate to local organisations through Kent Community Foundation.
Whether you are donating £100 or £100,000 this approach to local charitable giving allows you to decide which local beneficiary group you would like to benefit from your donation or, if you’re not sure, your donation can be spread across all four themes. Please see a description of each theme below. Once you have made your decision you can leave the rest to us.
Having distributed over £30m in grants in the past 17 years you can be confident that your donation will go to where it is needed the most in Kent and Medway.
Our themed programmes are open all year round and are open to any individual to donate as much or as little to the following causes:
