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.

We aim to inspire the volunteer network that underpins grassroots football and enables local football to flourish. At the same time we will seek to get more people physically active through football and ensuring underrepresented groups have appropriate football opportunities.

This website also provides the opportunity for those involved in football who have suffered injury or illness to make applications for grant aid to the Kent County Football Association Benevolent Fund.
