SUPPORT FOR THE VCS

We value the important role played by community groups and voluntary sector.

We offer the following to help build capacity and resilience in the community;

Information Sharing

  • A weekly e-newsletter distributed to over 1800 contacts in the community, non profit, health and social care sector in West Kent 

  • Asset mapping and directory of activities with a dedicated Information Officer; we can advise on local groups and provision

  • Meetings, events and networks for people working in the non profit sector, themed around key issues

 

 

 

Funding 

For the past 3 years we have managed a community capacity fund for social prescribing, £25,000 per year to support local groups and activities in West Kent which improve health and wellbeing. The funding has been awarded to those registered with Involve, either formally on our directory or are working with local social prescribing link workers. Organisations have been awarded with between £100 and £5000 to improve capacity, continue existing provision or start new community activities to help with unmet needs.
