Porchlight at the Kent Charity Awards

We've picked up another trophy, this time at the Kent Charity Awards.

Porchlight was named Community & Environment Charity of the Year at last night's awards ceremony. Judges praised our work giving a fresh start to the growing number of people who are homeless in Kent.

They also heard about our work in communities, addressing the issues that can potentially lead to homelessness. This includes supporting individuals who feel isolated, working with GP surgeries to address problems which can affect someone's ability to live independently, and running a service to support families.

"It was such a good night and there were so many deserving charities - we were very proud to be there," said Porchlight's Rachel Kelly.

We invited current residents Liam and Kyle and former resident Aaron to join us for the awards evening. It was a chance for them to enjoy some top class hospitality (courtesy of the Mercure Maidstone Great Danes Hotel) and join us on stage when we were announced as winners.
