CARM - working across Romney Marsh and parts of rural Ashford


Please see our News page for news articles and our EVENTS page for upcoming events.


CARM (Caring All together on Romney Marsh) provides support and services to older and vulnerable people on Romney Marsh and parts of rural Ashford. Our mission is to support people living on Romney Marsh and its surrounding rural areas who are socially isolated. Through this support we aim to improve people's well-being, to help people remain independent for longer and to enhance the quality of life of the rural communities where we operate. In pursuing this mission we will treat people with dignity and respect.

Through the dedication of our skilled and highly committed volunteers we have a significant positive impact on the lives of local older and vulnerable people and by virtue of our services we improve people's access to all health and welfare services.

The villages and small towns of the Marsh and the south of Ashford borough each have their own identity and character. People retiring to an area do not always have easy access to family and local support networks and that's where we come in.

CARM is a registered charity (no. 1067189 registered in 1997), supported by a board of trustees bringing a range of professional expertise and local knowledge.

In seeking to clearly articulate the value of our services we have produced an Impact Assessment Schedule which carefully identifies the positive impact each of our services have on specific key strategic health issues and social welfare concerns.  Importantly, the Impact Schedule assigns a value to some of these in terms of real and immediate savings on the public purse and the likely costs which will fall to the state in the longer term if these services are discontinued. The document, we believe, presents a compelling case for long term and sustained public funding.
