Working Towards A Safer Kent
Tel: 01622 653208
Safer Kent helps prevent crime and anti-social behaviour. We are dedicated to creating a better environment for everyone in Kent.
Our close association with the business community, Kent Police, Kent Fire & Rescue Service and local Councils gives us the contacts and expertise to identify, deliver and support community safety projects that work, including our award-winning youth programmes. We have assisted in financing the town centre radio networks, and the Street Pastors Groups, that help to reduce crime and deter criminals from coming to our town centres.
Safer Kent provides financial assistance in the form of grants and loans to groups that are working to improve community safety and reduce crime in Kent.
Education is key to Safer Kent's work, and we aim to advance education in all matters relating to crime prevention and community safety including: programmes that assist young people in building self dicapline and anger management skills through sports or arts based activities. The Trust is governed by a Board of Trustees from Kent’s leading private and public sector organisations.
We are entirely dependent on the generosity of local businesses and public sector bodies for our funding. Without their kind support, and their genuine commitment to the people of Kent, we would not be able to support many of the wonderful projects that are delivering change for all the community. We gratefully acknowledge their assistance.
