Social Enterprise Kent
Social Enterprise Kent’s (SEK) mission is “Improving Lives, Supporting Communities”. Every day we deliver a positive social impact, strengthen communities, empower people and improve lives. Guided by our principles as a social enterprise, we are committed to ensuring sustainable outcomes for communities, leaving those we work with, stronger and more resilient.
SEK delivers support across three main areas:
Training and Skills
SEK delivers a huge range of short courses like finance, digital, first aid, moving and handling, and safeguarding. In 2021/22 we successfully delivered training to over 4500 people. The training is high quality at low cost so everyone can get the same advantages as those working for organisations. We also deliver consultancy and 1:1 business support to all organisations including within the voluntary sector.
Wellbeing and Health
SEK has a range of projects that support high-level, systemic change such as improving cancer screening, and mental health access, large loneliness and isolation projects, and improving health and financial inequalities in the community. We run Our Kitchen, a social supermarket delivering grassroots support to over 3000 people in Thanet.. .............................................
