A Home-Start Medway, initiative, “Great Brompton Bake Off” is a group for forces families, funded by Kent Community Foundation
The “Great Brompton Bake Off” is a Home-Start Medway initiative, designed to support serving and former forces families in Medway. The weekly “Bake Off” group is free to attend and encourages forces families to bake, integrate and make new friends. The “Bake Off” has been instrumental in reducing isolation, loneliness and anxiety and improving emotional and physical wellbeing for the families who attend.
Home-Start Medway applied to Kent Community Foundation (KCF) for funding to support this group and was awarded £4,240.
Josephine McCartney, Chief Executive, Kent Community Foundation said, “Kent Community Foundation is delighted to support the “Great Brompton Bake Off.” We have seen the positive impact the group has had on parents and children, in not only reducing isolation and loneliness but offering a place for families to integrate and make new friends and we would love to hear from other Kent and Medway charities working with forces and former forces families who might need financial support.”
