Beaver Community Trust

Beaver Community Trust aims to establish a strong partnership, which will work hand in hand with local people to identify community needs so that a range of sustainable services can be developed and delivered for children and families.

The vision for Beaver Community Trust is to have a community in which children and families can flourish where all families feel supported and all children are safe, where access to health care, play and learning opportunities are available when, where and how it is most needed. We will do this by respecting families, seeking their views and responding to their needs.

Through a centrally focussed multi-skilled team, we aim to reach out with early support, information and guidance for children and families within South Ashford, to ensure individual access service which meets their identified needs.

We intend to provide a flexible, individually tailored, child-centred programme that includes and earns the respect of parents and raises challenges and expectations for neighbouring communities. We recognise that local people are the experts in their own neighbourhood. Beaver Community Trust is for all young children in the Beaver Community Trust neighbourhood and will reflect the diverse needs of families from different backgrounds, faiths and cultures. We want Beaver Community Trust to be a skilled foundation from which local families can draw support and encouragement to build a confident parenting community.
