Following the publication of Kent County Council’s (KCC) Voluntary and Community Sector policy in September 2015, a new service was introduced in January 2017 to provide support to voluntary sector organisations in the county.
Formed of 11 Kent organisations, Stronger Kent Communities (SKC) is an ambitious, dynamic consortium that works across Kent supporting and empowering the voluntary sector to make communities of Kent fairer and stronger.
To achieve this, Stronger Kent Communities:
- shares information about events, funding opportunities, training courses and best practice;
- delivers projects that encourage and support residents to become more involved within their communities;
- offers support and empowers communities and organisations;
- works innovatively, and
- amplifies and represents the voice of the voluntary sector.
Funding for All is proud to be a Stronger Kent Communities consortium member alongside partner organisations: Action with Communities in Rural Kent, Ashford Volunteer Centre, Canterbury & Herne Bay Volunteer Centre, Kent CAN, North West Kent Volunteer Centre, Swale Community & Voluntary Services, Shepway Volunteer Centre, Thanet Volunteer Bureau, West Kent Extra and Youth Central.
