Kent Community Foundation: Vulnerable Adults

Health & Social Care Local Grants Saturday August 31st, 2019

Kent Community Foundation’s Vulnerable Adults grant programme awards up to £5,000 to charities and VCSE organisations with projects that help vulnerable adults stay well and independent with a focus on early intervention projects to tackle disadvantage, deprivation and social exclusion.

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. The Foundation supports projects that give vulnerable people the opportunity to socialise with others; combatting isolation and social barriers.
