Our West Kent branch and smaller hubs are based in Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells. Our main branch in Tower House is home to two of our retail projects – furniture upcycling and the bike project – both training opportunities for young people. Horizon is another one of our social enterprise projects, and a space where young people with SEN or disabilities are able to gain experience and skills in carpentry. We also offer supported housing, youth clubs and run two charity furniture shops in the local area.


Ryder House provides safe, welcoming, supportive housing for 37 young people aged 16+ in high quality furnished flats in central Tunbridge Wells.  Click here to find out more about our supporting housing offer.
