Help Vulnerable Adults in Kent & Medway

Support projects that help vulnerable adults stay well and independent, with a focus on early intervention projects to tackle disadvantage, deprivation and social exclusion.

 Someone may not appear visibly vulnerable, but there are many people in our communities who need extra support or protection, such as people with a learning difficulty, physical disability, living with a mental health issue, victims of abuse, care leavers, refugees and asylum seekers, ex-offenders and carers.

A vulnerable person is someone who may need care and is unable to protect themselves from harm or exploitation. Someone may not appear visibly vulnerable, but there are many people in our communities who need extra support or protection, such as people with a learning difficulty, physical disability, living with a mental health issue, victims of abuse, care leavers, refugees and asylum seekers, ex-offenders and carers.
The Vulnerable Adults theme exists to support projects that are working to look after and promote the safety, well-being and independence of vulnerable adults. We support projects that give vulnerable people the opportunity to socialise with others; combatting isolation and social barriers. Through this theme we provide life skills and work experience for adults with learning difficulties, physical disabilities, or mental health issues. The theme protects victims of abuse and integrates marginalised groups in to the wider community. It supports carers who look after family members or loved ones at home, including offering respite or social activities.

Giving through our themed programmes

Our themed programmes are designed for anyone wishing to donate to local organisations through Kent Community Foundation.
