Thank you for visiting Stronger Kent Communities.

About Stronger Kent Communities

Stronger Kent Communities (SKC) began as a consortium of organisations, including CVS and Volunteer Centres across Kent, and has evolved into a community interest company to support not-for-profit organisations across Kent in building strong foundations, running smoothly and making connections. We offer the support you need in ways that work for you, covering Structure and Strategy, Funding and Income generation, Marketing and Communications, and Finance.

SKC Board

Our Board is made up of CEOs from Kent based charities; they meet regularly to share their expertise about the needs of the charitable sector in Kent and many of the board members represent SKC on county wide strategic groups.
