About us

IT IS WITH GREAT SADNESS THAT CEREBRAL PALSY CARE KENT, CLOSED ON THE 1ST FEBRUARY 2014 DUE TO LACK OF FUNDS. WE NEEDED TO RAISE AROUND £15,000 PER MONTH TO KEEP GOING, AND WE WERE ONLY BRINGING IN AROUND £5,000. THIS IS NO REFLECTION ON OUR TEAM JUST THE STATE OF THE ECONOMY THAT SURROUNDS US. WE GET NO GOVERNMENT FUNDING JUST PEOPLE/COMPANIES/GENEROUS DONATIONS. WE TRIED AMALGAMATING WITH OTHER CHARITIES BUT AGAIN DUE TO THE ECONOMY THIS WAS NOT SUCCESSFUL.

WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF INFORMING ALL THE RELEVENT GOVERNING BODIES, BUT THESE THINGS TAKE TIME AND WE ARE BEING ADVISED HOW TO DO THINGS PROPERLY.

WE HAVE BEEN WAITING ON THE SALE OF OUR BUILDING BRADBURY HOUSE, WHICH WOULD HAVE KEPT THE CHARITY GOING, BUT THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR TWO YEARS WITH PEOPLE PROMISING TO PURCHASE BUT NOT COMPLETING FOR ONE REASON OR ANOTHER. IT IS VERY SAD THAT WE HAD A SALE FOR £625,000 FOR THE BUILDING A YEAR AGO WITH FUNDS IN PLACE, BUT THEY PULLED OUT DUE TO LOCAL PEOPLES REACTION, BUT AGAIN WE DO NOT BLAME ANYONE AS NOT KNOWING WHAT IS GOING TO BE REPLACING CPC AT BRADBURY HOUSE CAN CAUSE CONCERN.

THE BUILDING AT PRESENT IS IN THE HANDS OF THE RECEIVERS FOR LLOYDS BANK NOT US BUT WE WILL BE APPOINTING ONE SOON ONCE WE HAVE ALL THE RELEVENT PAPERWORK IN PLACE.

AGAIN, MAY WE THANK ALL OUR GREAT SUPPORTERS AND STAFF FOR ALL THEIR DEDICATION AND HARD WORK, TOWARDS CEREBRAL PALSY CARE KENT .
