As a flagship social enterprise with almost 30-years’ experience offering high-quality training and employment support to businesses and individuals, we are in an ideal position to provide expert community support.
In the past few years, we have helped people and organisations to develop their resilience, create enterprises while encouraging activities to ensure their business is sustainable. We can claim we certainly improved the lives in our communities.
Previous Community Support Projects
We have worked on amazing projects across Kent and surrounding counties and produced excellent outcomes for our clients. Some of the projects include:
Active Community Support Projects
In 2014, we were successful in the Big Lottery Fund’s ‘Fulfilling Lives: Ageing Better’ bid for £3 million for five years. The project, Ageless Thanet, aims to reduce loneliness and social isolation, improve mental and physical health in people over 50-years-old to make Thanet a great place to grow older.
“Our work with SEK gives people a sense of belonging and achievement. People grow in their confidence, learn new skills and increase their ability to do things for themselves. You can’t put a price on that.”
