Cross Sector Networking Event

19th September 10-11.30am
Alexander Centre, Faversham 

This is the latest in a series of networking events by Stronger Kent Communities (SKC) delivered by KentCAN, supported by KCC.  

The events are aimed at Chief Executives and senior managers from across different sectors- private, public, voluntary and community. They are intended to provide a platform for sharing ideas and issues you may be facing as an organisation, with the potential to create new partnerships. They also provide an opportunity for businesses that may be looking for ways to deliver their Corporate Social Responsibility through offering time and skills, to connect with voluntary and community organisations. 

Mike Hill, Cabinet Member for Community Services (Kent County Council) will open the event in Faversham on the 19th September

Full details including an agenda will be published on the KentCAN website in due course
