Social Enterprise

We support a huge range of new and existing social enterprises through support capacity building programmes. We work with the VCSE sector with anything from grant fundraising, to Theory of Change, HR, governance, crowdfunding, social impact and more.

Increasingly however, SEK has been asked to help budding social enterprises realise their dreams of starting up their social business.  We have also been called upon to help share our experiences and provide mentoring support to established social enterprises.  In order to do this, we need funding so we are always on the lookout for grants or social enterprises can pay for this service direct if they have the means.  Please contact us for more information.

Social Enterprise Networking

We are part of the successful Ashford social enterprise network, and have set up location-specific social enterprise networking groups in Canterbury with networks starting soon in Folkestone, Thanet, Maidstone and Medway.  These have been hugely successful and valuable and are free for participants.  Again, all events can be booked through Eventbrite.

Business Support

Often when social entrepreneurs want to start their 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 has been delivering 12 hours of free one-to-one support under South East Business Boost, with support from the Kent and Medway Growth Hub.

Unfortunately the fully funded places are now booked up, but still get in contact and we will see if we can help on a more informal basis!
