Our partners and supporters


The Dockyard Church project is being funded by £4.75m raised by players of the National Lottery and distributed by the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF).

Our initial development of the project was funded by Swale Borough Council, Architectural Heritage Fund ,Pilgrim Trust and Queenborough Fishery Trust. This funding allowed us to procure our project team and develop the project sufficiently to meet the National Lottery Heritage Fund requirements for full funding.

Historic England awarded the Trust £199,000 to stabalise the present structure in preparation for the renovation work.

We have received generous awards from many Trusts and Foundations and individual donors which have enabled us to meet our NLHF matched funding requirements and therefore to progress the project into it’s delivery phase.

The Trust would like to thank its supporters who include:


Peter Stormonth Darling Charitable Trust

Henry Oldfield Trust


We are working with Kent Youth Support Trust to plan ways to design and manage our young business incubator at the Dockyard Church.
