The project was funded by the ‘UK Community Renewal Fund’ and allowed Diversity House to deliver comprehensive and all-encompassing intervention services to marginalised and disadvantaged people in Swale and Kent. This was achieved by providing local communities with opportunities to acquire and advance their life skills and competences.
