Thanet Hub


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.

Where are they held?

We alternate between the Kent Innovation Centre in Broadstairs, CT10 2QQ; and Ss. Austin & Gregory's Parish Hall in Margate, CT9 1LP.

When do they take place?

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.

What to expect

The usual format for our Networking Lunches is as follows:

  • Networking (10 mins)
  • Lunch & Learn (20 mins)
  • Updates from the organisations present (30 mins)
  • Networking (time remaining)

Lunch & Learn is an informal talk by an organisation from the Network, sharing their ideas, projects and activities, or areas of expertise in a certain area, such as fundraising, charity law, volunteer recruitment, and so on.

We serve tea, coffee, biscuits and healthy snacks, but please feel free to bring your own lunch along with you too!

There is no need to pre-book as we understand that flexibility is key whichever sector you work in. 

If you would like to join our ever growing Network of community organisations, please don't hesitate to contact us on 01843 609336 or [email protected].

Be sure to check our Upcoming Events page regularly for news of upcoming lunches, or alternatively we invite you to download a poster showing details of future Networking lunches. We hope to see you soon.
