Sustainability – Training – Advice – Mentoring – Partnerships

The STAMP Programme was an initiative funded by Kent County Council, Public Health and the Kent Clinical Commissioning Groups to support the development of a network of sustainable Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations with the resources to continue to deliver outstanding adult health and social care services. By accessing a series of high-quality local conferences, impactful training workshops and expert advice and coaching, frontline VCSE organisations will be able to lay the foundations for sustainable growth and development.
