Further Funding for Mental Health

Trustees have pledged to continue supporting mental health services within our local schools with an additional award of £10,000 to North Kent Mind during 2022. The support North Kent Mind provide is via a mixture of 1 to 1 and group sessions.  

“The opportunity to support young people in Medway via Richard Watts funding is invaluable and we are thankful to champion this in our local schools.” Rebecca Smith, Children & Young Person’s Manager, North Kent Mind

 

Along with the award to Breathing Space based in Rochester, who provide one-to-one counselling for young people, it brings the total 2022 RWC funding award for mental health support to £40,000.

Grant Awarded to Action for Borstal Community (ABC)

Trustees awarded £415 to Action for Borstal Community to help pay for their annual pre-school summer coach trip to Wingham Wildlife Park. The award means that ABC don’t need to charge parents for the trip and it remains accessible to all the children involved.
