Better Together wins bronze!

Published: Friday, 8th March 2024

Sevenoaks District’s Council’s Better Together project scooped a bronze award at the annual Improvement and Efficiency Social Enterprise (iESE) Public Sector Transformation Awards.

Better Together has local residents at its heart and provides practical support, skills development, networking and funding to bring together local communities, groups, and volunteers.

The project was nominated in the ‘Working together' category and received the bronze award for simplifying the way residents and local businesses deal with public services.

Sevenoaks District Council’s Cabinet member for People and Places, Cllr Lesley Dyball, says: “This is a great achievement for Better Together. The team have worked really hard to set up a hub that is benefitting our communities.

“Better Together encourages residents to bring forward ideas, skills, events and projects, which will help and connect our local communities. Projects so far include cooking, upcycling, gardening and food growing, sharing skills and learning, film nights, coffee mornings, singing clubs and lots more!”
