About Us

Social Enterprise Kent is a Community Interest Company (CIC) and social enterprise operating for over 35 years, with the overarching vision of “Improving Lives, Supporting Communities”.

If you are unsure exactly what a social enterprise is and does, watch the 'Join the Buy Social Revolution' video to the right to gain a better understanding.

There are four pillars of Social Enterprise Kent: Education and Training, Social Enterprise Support, Community Support, and Employment Support.

One of our key programmes over the last seven years has been Ageless Thanet, funded by The National Lottery Community Fund’s ‘Fulfilling Lives: Ageing Better’ programme. Watch the video to see some of our impact and learning. Visit the Ageless Thanet website for more details.

As a social enterprise, we're all about making a positive social impact in communities. We support individuals and businesses and work in partnership for the best outcomes. We're registered with, and regulated by, the CIC Regulator, which means that all of our operational activities are guided by a commitment to maximising our positive social impact.


Strategic Objectives

Social Enterprise Kent CIC has been driven by All Seasons – our social enterprise delivering adult care services. Our priority has been to stabilise, grow and to establish All Seasons as a successful stand-alone social enterprise. Having completed this key piece of work it is time to turn our attention to developing and growing Social Enterprise Kent.

Social Enterprise Kent (SEK) is proud to be recognised as a Mindful Employer.

Unlike other accreditations or quality standards, the Charter for ‘Employers Positive about Mental Health’ is about recognising those employers working towards better mental health in the workplace; no matter where they are in their journey. SEK has signed the Charter completely voluntary and by signing the Charter, SEK as an employer is making a public declaration of our ambition to support the mental wellbeing of our staff by agreeing to the following six values:
  1. To provide non-judgemental and proactive support to staff experiencing mental ill-health.
  2. To not make assumptions about a person with a mental health condition and their ability to work.
  3. To be positive and enabling toward all employees and applicants with a mental health condition.
  4. To support line managers in managing mental health in the workplace.
  5. To ensure they are fair in the recruitment of new staff in accordance with the Equality Act (2010).
  6. To make it clear that people who have experienced mental ill-health will not be discriminated against, and that disclosure of a mental health conditions will enable both the employee and employer to assess and provide the right level of support or adjustment.

SEK is routinely reviewed by the Mindful Employer NHS Trust to ensure that we:

  • Reflect on how we are promoting our commitment to better mental health at work.
  • Provide details on good practice that is in place.
  • Reflect on and provide details of areas for improvement; including actions taken to address these.
