Charities

We love supporting local communities

Beanstalk is a national literacy charity that recruits, trains and supports volunteers to work in primary schools with children who have fallen behind with their reading. Beanstalk's vision is that all children and young people have the essential skills they need to grow up and lead successful lives. We are seeking volunteers who can help in local schools and encourage children who struggle with reading. To find out how to volunteer, visit beanstalkcharity.org.uk or contact the Kent and Medway branch on 01622 662026.

We help families of high risk pregnancies, premature babies & those who have suffered loss. We support through counselling, a Baby Memorial Garden, 'buddying' & a forum. We provide specialist equipment to identify symptons earlier in order to have a positive outcome & research baby loss so more effective intervention & prevention may be established leading to the UK's statistics becoming lower.
