West Kent Debt Advice
Our Kent branches are run with the support of our partner charity West Kent Debt Advice (WKDA).
WKDA is an independent local charity with its own board of trustees which exists to support the provision of debt and money advice in West Kent and beyond. First established in 2004, WKDA merged its advice activities with Crosslight in 2017 and today achieves its mission through its partnership with Crosslight. WKDA is responsible for most of the funding of the Kent branches, raising funds from local donors and grant making bodies. Crucially, WKDA’s charity board provides the Kent branches with local accountability and strategic advice, as well as assisting with the recruitment and training of local volunteers. WKDA employs a Branch Manager who is in turn seconded to Crosslight, and appoints a representative to the main Crosslight charity board.
Our Kent Branches also rely on the generosity of local churches who provide them with office space and counselling rooms as well as pastoral support for volunteers and clients alike.
Without the support of WKDA and the churches that support them, our Crosslight Kent Branches would not exist.
All our branches rely on the generosity of donors to fund our work. Any donations you are able to make towards our work in Kent will be used by West Kent Debt Advice charity towards the cost of running our Kent Branches.
