Maidstone Cares is crowdfunding to support our most vulnerable residents across the Borough of Maidstone through the Covid-19 crisis.
So many residents are already helping and supporting neighbours, family and friends and we are really appreciative of this. Here you can help our community by donating to provide additional support to those most in need.
The money raised will ensure food banks have enough food to feed families and individuals who may go without as this crisis continues. The charity organisations support through befriending services for those who are isolated and alone.

The most important action we can all take, in fighting coronavirus, is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives.
You should only leave the house for one of four reasons, and one of these is to provide care or to help a vulnerable person. Even when you are doing this, you need to do so safely. You should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres (6 feet) apart from anyone outside of your household.
