What We Do
The Kent FA Charitable Foundation aims to invest in football activities and facilities across Kent and South East London that enable people to improve their mental, social and physical well being. It will support football participation levels for players of all abilities, especially for those who are currently physically inactive.
During the 2017/18 season the Foundation supported 21 projects investing around £32,000 into facilities, football projects and equipment together with assistance in creating 13 new women’s football teams.
What We Fund
Community football grants provide small amounts of funding to help volunteers along the way in their quest to simply provide football opportunities and retain participation levels. Community grants will be prioritised where they can demonstrate that the funding will ultimately support the creation of new teams or sustaining existing teams. APPLY NOW ►
