Hardship Help Lines for Parents

An Emergency Hardship Fund has been launched in Kent to support families with children who have complex needs and who are facing increased challenges during the coronavirus pandemic.

This Fund has been opened specifically to help those who already deal with the complex needs of their child or children and now also face increased challenges through reduced income from losing their job or being furloughed, with many also seeing an increase in expenditure as their children stay at home from school.

Families in need of funding support must be referred to the KCF through a professional third party who can nominate on their behalf. This could be a social worker, a GP, specialist doctor, occupational therapist or school teaching staff.
