Foundations: Supporting Families

Registered Charity No. 1150716


About Us

Foundations was Founded in 2012 by Vicky West and Lesley Singleton. As Social Workers, Lesley and Vicky whilst working for Local Authorities realised that there were limited independent resources to support Families separated from their families.

The Charity currently has six trustees including local business people, undergraduates, a foster carer and service users, and we would welcome more applicants from local members of the community, particularly those who have experienced separation from their children/family and divorce.

The Centre

Foundations: Supporting Families is based in Chatham and is situated in a large building located in the heart of Medway. Just 300 yards from Chatham Rail Station and a short walk from Chatham Bus Station. Car parks are situated nearby (Sir John Hawkins and Paddock Car Park).

If agreed by all involved families can also go to the Town Centre or visit local attractions such as Dickens World, Bowling Alley and local Parks. If contact is supervised the supervisor will go with you to ensure all is well.
