Message from Kent Young Carers

Following the announcement about Lockdown on the 4th of January 2021, we wanted to take the opportunity to advise that Kent Young Carers is still delivering a service and we are still accepting referrals for all young people between the ages of 5-18 who provide support (physical or otherwise) for someone at home with a physical or mental health issue, disability, or substance misuse.

Referrals can be made through our online referral form here -

KYC Referral

Please ensure that you have consent from the person with parental responsibility for the Young Carer before making a referral.

Our Service will make contact with families in a COVID safe manner, such as phone or video call. All Young Carers are entitled to an assessment, which will help in identifying what support each Young Carer would benefit from. Our service will also continue to assist and work together with schools to ensure that Young Carers are identified and have access to support. We offer training to schools on identifying Young Carers, should that be an area of interest.

You may also be aware that Young Carers are included on the list of vulnerable young people who would be entitled to attend school; if you would like to confirm any names, please get in touch with us, or the support coordinator for your area if you have their details.


If you are experiencing any difficulties during this current situation, the Kent Together Helpline may be able to offer some assistance.

Message from Swale Food Bank:


Please note, we will be running Swale Foodbank on a DELIVERY ONLY basis ie we will bring your food parcel to your home. Please do NOT attend any of our centres - please private message us on our Facebook site or email us on info@swale.foodbank or call us after 9am on 07486 370709.

Please be patient with us as we find a new way of running foodbank to ensure those most in need are still able to access emergency food.

Just a reminder, Swale Foodbank is for those with no money AND no food. We are not a replacement for your usual shopping because you cannot get out to the shops or items are unavailable. It is vital that the stock we have goes to those most in need.

Thank you for your understanding :)
