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.
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.
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.
Put simply, we are a successful, ethical business dedicated to improving lives and building stronger communities. By browsing our website and everything we do, you’ll see all the direct impact we make.
