Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We will keep you up to date with all the relevant information, and support available, as well as providing regular events for our members to connect and support.

We will also be keeping you up to date on our social media channels so please follow.

We want you all to know that The Kent Foundations priority over the coming weeks in the situation we face with Coronavirus (COVID-19) is that we will be doing everything we can to support all our members through this challenging time.

We have introduced the following measures with immediate effect.

  • All Kent Foundation face to face activity, events and workshops planned have been cancelled until further notice.
  • All of our members (Businesses supported, Volunteer Business Mentors, Trustees and Staff) must follow guidance provided by government in any activity related to our services. 

The Governments and the NHS information is updated regularly so please continue to refer back to it to make sure you are following the latest advice. We are also very aware there is a lot of concern for people’s well-being at this time to, so please connect with groups online, pick up the phone and just stay connected.

Specifically to our Volunteer Business Mentors. As many of us are now self isolated please continue to send messages over to the business you are supporting, or pick up the phone for a catch up. To know they have your support at this time means a lot. Consider using Skype or Zoom, and perhaps checking in with them on more regular basis, as the environment we now have continues to change at a considerable pace. 

Specifically to Kent’s Young Business Owners. We are here to help. As information comes in we will do our best to notify you on our website, as well as through our social media platforms so keep following. If you just want a chat please call or message us as you normally would.

The Kent Foundations role has always been to support Young People in Business. As this current situation continues to unfold our primary service is to support you through it. We will provide as much information, advice and guidance that we can. We will continue to updating you at least on a weekly basis and with a program of events now planned for the coming weeks so we look forward to connecting with you soon.
