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 wellbeing. It will support football participation for players of all abilities, especially for those who are currently physically inactive.
Since its inception in 2018, the Foundation has supported 85 separate projects investing around £135,000 into facilities, football initiatives and equipment together with helping to support the creation of numerous new teams.
In addition, the Foundation invested £27,000 to support the return to football following the Covid-10 enforced break by providing first aid kits to all Kent FA affiliated teams.
