Medway Council: Medway Parenting Support Fund

Local Grants Youth Saturday September 3rd, 2022 11:59pm

Medway Council’s Medway Parenting Support Fund, administrated by Kent Community Foundation, awards grants of up to £5,000 to local charitable groups who are able to deliver support activities/groups to benefit parents and carers of Medway children and young people 0-18 (or 0-25 if the Young person cared for has Special Educational Needs and Disabilities – SEND).

The funding will be used to deliver some of the outcomes that parents and carers in Medway said they would like to see:

  • To have confidence in their skills and ability, including a focus on their children’s behaviours and emotional wellbeing along with the management of all relationships within the family
  • To easily access support for all, including for those with complex needs

Organisations are encouraged to support parents using the following methods, with an emphasis on self-sustaining models of support:

  • Peer support run by parents/carers for parents/carers, experts by experience
  • COVID recovery for parents and carers and their children
  • Groups that are accessible to the community in a variety of ways

Organisations are particularly encouraged to deliver services that support overall wellbeing for families, including but not limited to:

  • Fathers/dads/male carers
  • Single parents
  • Parents/carers with younger children impacted by the pandemic
  • Parents/carers with their own disabilities and/or additional needs
  • Parents/carers of children and young people who consider themselves part of an ethnic minority group

Deadline: Friday 30 September 2022
