About Ageless Thanet
Ageless Thanet is led by Social Enterprise Kent, and funded by The National Lottery Community Fund’s ‘Fulfilling Lives: Ageing Better’ programme. The national Ageing Better programme is designed to improve the lives of people over 50, by reducing loneliness and social isolation, and improving mental and physical wellbeing. Almost 150,000 people have been involved in the programme across 14 locations, including Torbay, Middlesbrough, Birmingham, and the Isle of Wight.
We are currently working in partnership with Citizens Advice Thanet on the Life Planning service, and Your Leisure to deliver our Wellbeing Activities.
Over the course of the project we have also worked with other local organisations such as Action with Communities in Rural Kent, Red Zebra, Thanet Community Development Trust, University of Kent.
By contracting high-quality, trusted and experienced local organisations, working in partnership, Social Enterprise Kent aims to make the biggest, most positive impact possible with the funding received.
Social Enterprise Kent work with a wide variety of partners across all sectors. We are very lucky to have a strong and varied wider partnership of organisations and individuals from all sectors who have supported, helped, got involved and shown interest throughout the Ageless Thanet Project, these include:
Kent County Council, Thanet District Council, Thanet Clinical Commissioning Group, Turner Contemporary, The Dreamland Trust, Margate Task Force, Broadstairs Town Shed and Department for Work and Pensions.
