Together Kent brings people together to share best practice and build capacity. Issues of low income, debt, lack of skills, poor mental health and isolation are complex and closely interlinking, trapping communities and individuals in a web of poverty.
Our vision is to see all churches, in every community, coming together to tackle these issues through action, prayer and giving. Together Kent works closely with the Communities and Partnerships team at Canterbury Diocese to provide support to churches in Kent.
We aim to deliver work through innovative partnerships with other charities, voluntary organisations and local authorities. We aim to improve access to resources, make local work more effective, and create a framework for others to respond to the social challenges in Kent.
We engage with churches of all denominations, as well as faith based organisations, to encourage them to work together and with others in responding to poverty and marginalisation. Through the Communities and Partnerships department at Canterbury Diocese we offer practical advice and guidance to parishes considering how they can better serve the socially and financially deprived in their communities.
