The Linda Hogan Community Fund is provided and administered by Kent charity, West Kent Extra (WKE). Funding is intended to support community groups for projects and activities that help their local communities.
The fund is particularly keen to support groups that are led by local people and community champions. Priority will be given to new and existing groups for projects that encourage more people to get involved in their local communities and to build strong neighbourhoods.
Funding is available for the following:
- Groups and organisations who provide, or will provide, services to residents living in areas across Kent.
- New groups and organisations to get off the ground.
- Existing groups to start up and/or expand their services and activities.
- Groups and organisations working with ‘hard to reach’ groups.
Priority will be given to groups that are led/managed by local people and community champions.
Unconstituted groups without a bank account will need to have the support of an umbrella or partner organisation to assist with finance and administration.
If the project involves work with elderly, physically or mentally impaired people, the organisation must have a vulnerable adults policy.
The panel are keen to support smaller organisations where the money will make a real impact and organisations with a high turnover and significant reserves are less likely to be successful.
