In October 2023, we held our first Open Afternoon, welcoming colleagues from across the voluntary sector to visit our premises to see some of our beneficiaries in action. 

 This included a visit from the Mayor of Medway and 4 local Councillors.

This is becoming increasingly well attended month on month.

Launched in November 2023, the networking cuppa was set up in response to a need highlighted during our open afternoon, that colleagues in the third sector were feeling quite isolated. Held on a monthly basis, this provides the opportunity for these colleagues from across the voluntary sector to come together to share ideas and where appropriate form collaborations, but also just to get together for a chat over a cuppa.
