The Headline Sponsor of the Kent Digital Awards 2015, Golding Vision, is searching for digital and IT businesses from Kent to team up with on a new community project.
The organisation – which is part of affordable housing company Golding Homes – invests time and money into improving the lives of people in Kent.
Each year Golding Vision invests more than £400,000 on an innovative programme of community development projects which focus on four key themes Place Shaping, Safer Communities, Health and Wellbeing, and Financial Inclusion.
Caroline McBride, Head of Community Development at Golding Homes, said: “We’re excited at the potential that digital skills can bring to communities and individuals, and to see the very best work the county can offer.
“We’re keen to find out who is able push the boundaries of technology and its uses. We want to work with local communities to explore IT, and are looking for like-minded partners to journey with us.”
By teaming up with the Awards, Golding Vision is hoping to find a partner within the digital marketing or IT industries, which can work alongside them to improve the life chances of people through a new digital skills learning programme.
Parent organisation Golding Homes was established in 2004 and has since invested more than £100m into regenerating affordable homes and estates for around 20,000 residents in the areas of Maidstone, Tonbridge, Ashford and Malling.
Through launching Golding Vision they are achieving their mission to demonstrate that Golding Homes is about more than “bricks and mortar”, and recognises its responsibility to invest in its local communities.
Golding Vision has developed a network of partners whom they work with on a range of projects. This has enabled them to make the most of resources locally, develop highly successful community projects and see tangible improvements for residents.
