Admissions & enquiries

If you would like to find out more about any aspect of a residential project,  if you would like to visit or have any other queries, please contact us.

To apply for support within one of our projects, please download and fill in the generic Kenward Trust residential rehabilitation application form and send it to Admissions.

For the Malthouse or supported housing, you will need to fill in a specific form, in addition to the generic form (unless you have already completed one previously).

Once completed, please send your form(s) to:

Alison Pert 
Kenward Trust, Head Office
Kenward Road
ME18 6AH

Alternatively, you can apply online here  or call us on 01622 812603.

Acceptance is subject to interview and risk/needs assessment. We are able to travel to meet you to do this. You can read our full eligibility criteria here


Please contact us for the current weekly cost. This will cover all essential costs including: accommodation, food, therapy, essential maintenance, emergency on-call staff, etc. As a charity, we function within very tight financial contraints but we also aim to provide enhanced services such as vocational activities and training to maximise successful reintegration and a sustained recovery. We seek donations from a variety of sources in order to provide these additional activities.


  • There are a few routes for admissions / funding.
  • Referral from your local substance misuse agency. Details of the agency will be available from your county council and you will need to get in touch with them for an assessment and advice on the best recovery plan for you. Your key worker will then discuss with you if a particular project is suitable, how long a programme you would need and whether they can fund it for you, as they may have certain criteria. Feel free to call us for a discussion on this.
  • Self-funding. If you are able to pay for the cost of your stay, please contact  us directly. This route will be faster. We can discuss the most appropriate  recovery plan to meet  your personal goals.
