Amber seeks green light for new centre in Kent

We have recently submitted a planning application to change a former guest house in Ashford, Kent into a dedicated residential centre for disadvantaged young people.

If approved Amber would be able to offer a temporary home, 24/7 support and Amber’s unique personal development programme for young people in Kent. The property is a 13-bedroom Downsview Guest House on Willesborough Road in Kennington which we hope to house up to 26 young people aged 16-30 at any one time.
