The Kent Foundation is a charity supporting Kent's young people to start or grow a business in Kent. This is mainly achieved through two services:

  • 1-2-1 Information, Advice and Guidance sessions with a Kent Foundation member of staff or trained Volunteer Mentor. These are held at a convenient time and location for the young person. We pride ourselves on contacting every young person that gets in touch as we know that no two people or business ideas are ever the same.

  • Ongoing and specialist support is delivered through trained Volunteer Business Mentors who offer their time to support young people explore and develop their ideas in to sustainable businesses. They offer a diverse range of business skills and expertise enabling us to better match young people to receive the most relevant support.

We recognise each young person and each business idea is different, therefore all our services are focussed on the individual. We have six truths that the charity abides by in the work delivered and these are:

Truth 1

We build confidence and enable young people to realise their personal and business potential

Truth 2

We help young people to believe in themselves and their business ideas

Truth 3

We promote business as a realistic career option for young people

Truth 4

We listen, engage and respond appropriately to issues faced by young business owners to support informed decision making

Truth 5

We offer support to the ‘disadvantaged’ and the ‘advantaged’ in the same way

Truth 6

Our services are free
