Project Kent is back for 2019!
24 Jun 2019

Kent Reliance has been supporting the people of Kent for over 150 years. We’re passionate about helping our local  community and that’s why we’re proud to announce the launch of this year’s Project Kent in partnership with kmfm.

Project Kent gives you the opportunity to nominate an organisation within your neighbourhood that you feel needs some additional support. This could be a community group needing help with a DIY project. Or maybe a local youth club needing some gardening support - the choice is yours!

The chosen project will be announced in July and will benefit from hands-on help from our troop of enthusiastic Kent Reliance volunteers.

To nominate, visit and find out more about how you can become a part of changing Kent for the better.

Please note that you can only put forward one project, which must be based in Kent.

Watch our video to see how we’ve already made a difference together!

"The difference Project Kent has made to our Maidstone Hub is clear to see. In addition, the exposure has brought more volunteer applications, funding opportunities and partnerships…thank you to everyone involved."

The Young Lives Foundation (YLF) was chosen for Project Kent because of all the amazing work they carry out across the county helping vulnerable, and disadvantaged children, and young people. Thanks to Project Kent’s makeover the charity can now invite more young people into the building to use the space for things like homework, WIFI access, learning new skills, meeting up with each other and to chill out. It will also be used for mentoring sessions and visitor meetings as well as continuing to be a busy support office.

We’ve put together a short video for you to see the amazing transformation that happened over a very busy week and to see our volunteers in action – we’re looking forward to continuing our partnership with YLF.


Thanks to new relationships, Kent Reliance and kmfm are keen to continue to work alongside the charity and make a difference to young people's lives in Kent.
