Managing Better Together

  • Canterbury Innovation Centre University Road, Canterbury CT2 7FG (map)

Are you a manager or leader in a local Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sector organisation?

Are you managing on your own with little or no management support or supervision?

Are you interested in sharing information and ideas to avoid reinventing the wheel?

Would you value the opportunity to discuss problems and issues with others in a similar position, in a friendly confidential setting?

 If you answered YES, then look no further! Managing Better Together is our forum for managers and leaders in the VCSE sector. We believe that by supporting each other we can help each other to become better informed, better managers and so make the sector better for all.

“I always enjoy the meetings and look forward to having the space to discuss issues and challenges with others in a similar position with a wide range of experience and informed, objective but very supportive, advice and views.''

Managing Better Together meets at the Canterbury Innovation Centre, University Road, Canterbury, Kent CT2 7FG from 9.30am – 12.00. Each meeting will follow the same format, to allow time for discussion of a particular theme or topic and for peer support:
9.30 – 10.00    Arrival, coffee, informal networking
10.00 – 11.00   Theme / topic / presentation
11.00 – 12.00    Peer support

The topic for the November meeting is mental health and wellbeing.

We don't charge a set fee for attendance but we do ask for a contribution of at least £2 towards the costs of venue hire and refreshments. Places are limited so booking is essential. To book your place please email
