The Gatwick Foundation Fund, administrated by Kent Community Foundation, awards grants of up to £10,000 (typically up to £5,000) to charities, social enterprises, community groups and voluntary organisations working in West Kent, specifically the boroughs of Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge & Malling and in particular, Sevenoaks.
The Fund will prioritise projects which promote:
- Employment, training and skills – helping people to gain confidence and raise aspirations through training and development of new skills.
- Families – supporting families and children in need and projects which combat social isolation and disadvantage.
- Widening horizons / providing opportunities – supporting projects that enable young people to have opportunities that they would not otherwise have and to help them to widen their horizons and aspirations.
- Elderly People – improving access to facilities and reducing isolation for the older generation.
Grants may be used to fund existing services and facilities or new initiatives. Applications from groups who have not applied before are particularly encouraged.
There may also be the possibility for successful projects to receive support from Gatwick employees – either a general volunteering contribution or specific skills.
Deadline: Friday 10 May 2019.
