Kent Friendz Superstars

05 April 2016

“By holding the project in local facilities, we will be able to forge stronger links with the rest of the community."

Kent Friendz has received more than £48,000 from People’s Health Trust – using money raised by HealthWhole through The Health Lottery.

The money will fund Kent Friendz Superstars; a project providing tailored activities for children with profound multiple learning disabilities in Tonbridge and Malling, Kent.

Kent Friendz Superstars is the result of a successful pilot scheme which identified a need for such a project in the area.

The project is run by a volunteer board, many of whom have children with learning and physical disabilities.

Activities will be decided on through discussions with parents and children so that members can shape and design the project.

The project will take place in accessible local venues, such as community centres, to help members connect with other residents and raise awareness of disabilities.

Chris Burton, Chief Executive Officer of Kent Friendz, said: “No child is excluded from Kent Friendz because of their disability. We are delighted to receive funding from People’s Health Trust which will enable us to continue our much-needed services through Kent Friendz Superstars.

“By holding the project in local facilities, we will be able to forge stronger links with the rest of the community. These links will help local people to better understand learning disabilities.”
