CARM (Caring All together on Romney Marsh) provides support and services with dignity and respect to older and vulnerable people on Romney Marsh and parts of rural Ashford.

Their mission is to support people living on the Marsh and its surrounding rural areas who are socially isolated and through this support improve their well-being, help them to remain independent for longer and enhance the quality of life of the rural communities where they operate.

Through the dedication of their skilled and highly committed volunteers they have a significant positive impact on the lives of local older and vulnerable people and by virtue of their services they improve people’s access to all health and welfare services.

Kent Young Carers is a service for more than 10,000 youngsters under the age of 18 across Kent taking on caring responsibilities for a family member with a long-term illness, disability, mental health or substance misuse issue.

KYC enables them to receive some respite from their caring responsibilities, socialise with their peers and receive tailored support and information. Being a Young Carer can contribute to low confidence and self-esteem, low educational attendance & attainment and poor physical & mental health.

It is KYC’s aim to reduce the negative and highlight the positive impact of being a carer such as increased resilience, empathy, non-judgemental attitude and caring nature and to let them know that they are not alone in their caring role.

Peter Sloper Trust Fund Rotary Club of Romney Marsh in memory of Peter Sloper, one of its founder members.
Peter was a pharmacist and at the time of his death owned the only pharmacy in Dymchurch. With this in mind the original aim o…f the Trust was to provide bursaries for students of Southlands School (as it was then) who were going on to University to study pharmacy. As times changed it became apparent that this was too narrow a field and over the years we have gradually ‘moved the goalposts’ so that the Trust Fund could cover more students.
The situation today is that we can consider requests from any student living on Romney Marsh, irrespective of which school they attend, and who is going on to University to read not only pharmacy but also any science related course.
The fund is relatively small and any bursaries are usually in the region of £250. Even so, this would still be useful to students especially in today’s financial climate.
For more information please contact us.
