FORGOT YOUR DETAILS?

Corporate support

We are very grateful to the organisations that have supported us locally and nationally over the years. Many Kent businesses have experienced the difference we make in the local area and have since provided advice, voluntary, in-kind support or match funding, having a direct impact on how we improve the lives of people with a learning disability.

Developing these strong links has established more of an inclusive attitude towards people with a learning disability and made individuals feel more confident about accessing businesses in their local community. From a sales assistant knowing when someone might need a little more time, to someone with a learning disability having the confidence to apply for a job there.

Join us

Whether you are an independent or a local branch, part of a team or manage one, if you want your business to be more involved with the community, we can work together to change the lives of those who do not always feel a part of it.

Examples of ways in which your business could support us, include:

  • keeping collection tins,
  • offering reduced fees for resources,
  • donating raffle prizes,
  • fundraising for our latest appeal, and
  • volunteering at our clubs and events.

As a thank you, we will promote your business both on- and offline, from posts and tweets to newsletters and newspapers.

Major expansion

We have finally completed the purchase of Foresters Hall in Ramsgate after Thanet District Council agreed to sell the property through a Community Asset Transfer. Foresters Hall, which includes a listed building from 1811, as well as other properties, will provide us with much needed space to expand its services for people with a learning disability and their families.
East Kent Mencap requires a support worker for the supported living service in a 4 bedded property in Herne Bay and to work with community based individuals in the surrounding areas. You will work shifts on a flexible rota pattern and this will include evenings, weekend, bank holidays (enhanced pay available) and sleep-in’s (payable at £70.47 per night). As a full time employee of East Kent Mencap who is covering two sleep-ins a week, you will earn between £21,829.92 and £24,273.40 per annum.
If you live life to the full, come and support others to do the same? Every day you will help someone to achieve the things they never thought they could do! We are currently offering a part time contract (15 hours) for an enthusiastic support worker in our Herne Bay Resource Centre. Ideally, you will have experience of working in a Resource Centre or have creative/artistic skills.
East Kent Mencap is looking to recruit a number of support workers (full time and part time) to join our rapidly expanding support team in Swale. Our clients will be supported with their daily living skills such as accessing the community, shopping, cooking, and budgeting, this will be achieved by following person centred plans and the individual’s support plan.
