Red Zebra is a local infrastructure organisation, working with residents and organisations to improve opportunities and services for people in the community.

We do not deliver ‘front-line’ services, but work in partnership with others to improve their effectiveness and impact. As a local charity, we can offer creative and innovative solutions and take a flexible approach in all we do. For example, we are acting as the lead organisation to enable the Community Chefs to deliver their First Service programme in Thanet and Herne Bay, funded by the DWP Flexible Support Fund.
