Kenward Trust provides primary stage residential rehabilitation and recovery services for men and women at locations across Kent and East Sussex.

Kenward Trust is a charity, helping people to transform their lives for over 50 years, from the misery of addiction, homelessness and crime. We help transform the lives of over 200 men and women every year.  

A team of experienced, dedicated and caring professionals, provide personalised interventions and one-to-one support across a number of projects and sites, addressing alcohol and drug dependence and related issues.

Our work also engages with young people, families, employers and other agencies across the community to educate, inform and advise on all matters related to the causes and consequences of drug and alcohol dependence.

Kenward Therapeutic Community
Based at Yalding our Therapeutic Community stage one project offers aspects of the Recovery Model of treatment delivery, alongside a wide range of activities with both therapeutic and skills based training in our Social Enterprise.

Move On
This is Kenward Trust's resettlement project, for people who have completed a suitable recovery programme. We have five supported accommodation projects which help sustain recovery and reintegration into the community.  These are located in Gravesend, Maidstone, Tunbridge Wells and Uckfield.

Other services include Reset which is a Big Lottery funded volunteer led mentor service that identifies and caters for the needs of the individuals being released from prisons around the country and resettling in Kent.

Education & Intervention
We are committed to reducing re-offending: providing support, guidance and sanctuary to those facing disadvantage & discrimination.

We also work extensively in the community with young people. Kenward in the Community offers preventative, early intervention and outreach-focused substance misuse service for young people. The Think Differently campaign works in many schools across Kent, explaining the dangers of using addictive substances. 

Kenward Educational Services

Kenward Education Services (KES) establishes a bespoke learning plan with achievable steps for all residents interested, during their stay in Kenward's residential rehabilitation services.
