Supporting Communities

Guided by our principles as a social enterprise,we are committed to ensuring sustainable outcomes for communities,

Social Enterprise Support

Often when social entrepreneurs want to start their very own social enterprise as a charity or community interest company, it’s difficult to get the right support and information along the journey to social impact.

Social Enterprise Kent is excited to be hosting a Kent and Medway social enterprise conference! This year the conference will be held at Westgate Hall, a beautiful social enterprise in the heart of Canterbury. It is easily accessible by public transport, and right next to Pound Lane car park. You can find out more and book your place by clicking here.

Social Enterprise Kent has teamed up with South East Business Boost and Kent and Medway Growth Hub to provide 12-hours of free one-to-one support to individuals running their registered social enterprise.

Working across Thanet, Canterbury, Folkestone, Hythe, Shepway and Dover, Social Enterprise Kent are delivering the exciting 'Let's Get Working' project. Let’s Get Working is a Building Better Opportunities project, funded by the European Social Fund and through the National Lottery Community Fund

'Let's Get Working' is a social prescribing project where we provide intensive , personally tailored and ongoing practical support for disadvantaged people over the age of 16, who are not in work or training due to a disability or long-term physical health condition.

Participants are assigned a dedicated Community Connector who will work closely with them to help them take their next steps towards employment, volunteering, work placements or getting involved in their local community.

Ageless Thanet is working towards achieving the following outcomes.

People aged 50 and over are:

The programme also aims to support:
