We know how important it is for local community-based organisations to be able to meet up with each-other, to share information, ideas, service updates and best practice.
In order to facilitate this, we hold monthly Networking lunches where organisations from the charity, community, public and voluntary sectors can meet. We warmly invite you to come along and build new or existing links with like-minded people and organisations from around the Thanet community.
We alternate between the Kent Innovation Centre in Broadstairs, CT10 2QQ; and Ss. Austin & Gregory's Parish Hall in Margate, CT9 1LP.
Our Networking lunches ordinarily take place on the last Monday of the month, from 12:30pm-2pm. The only exception being bank holidays - lunches are held the week before - and December.
We are very proud to work in collaboration with Thanet's thriving charity community radio station, Academy FM Thanet, to raise the profile of charity sector and volunteer groups in Thanet through the station's highly effective Community Action facility.
It works by you attending a Networking lunch, and with help from our trained staff, recording a 60-second summary of your organisation - including the work you do, a call to action (e.g. fundraising or volunteer recruitment), and how to get in touch with you. The recordings are sent to Academy FM for editing, and are then played out regularly in the weeks ahead.

Academy FM also offers several reasonably-priced advertising opportunities should your charity wish to scale up your profile locally. Please contact the station directly
