the Bay

Welcome to Herne Bay Coastal Community CIC

Supporting the Bay in every way!

Founded in September 2015, the Herne Bay Coastal Community Team is one of 146 Coastal Community Teams around the British coast. We were funded initially with a £10,000 start-up grant from central government.

We now seek to secure funding to enable us to work with community groups, charities, local businesses and the local authority; and to support business, cultural and social regeneration projects within the Bay. The Neptune Co-working Hub is one such project for which we secured funding.

In June 2020 we achieved CIC (Community Interest Company) status. We hope that this will help us access grants for projects that were previously unavailable.

Our aim is to support the Bay, to become a better coastal community for the benefit of all. We already support local community groups through our lottery. Click here to find out more about the groups which have benefited.

If you think you have a project that we could help you with, or there is something you would like to see in Herne Bay that the town doesn’t already have, please contact us.
