The Trust is keen to support initiatives that help young people to realise their potential. It has provided considerable funding for schools, learning initiatives and charitable organisations that support the development and well-being of young people.
Significant donations have been made towards capital costs and endowment funds at a number of schools and Academies in Kent, most notably in Folkestone. The Roger De Haan Charitable Trust’s financial support helped to attract significant government funding for the design and construction of brand new buildings to replace outdated accommodation that was deemed unfit for purpose. As a result Folkestone All Age Academy operates from purpose designed buildings, offering an outstanding learning environment where students enjoy better amenities feel safer and more valued, and where staff can work more easily with their students to improve academic performance.
