Vision for Kent

The Vision for Kent is our countywide strategy for the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of Kent’s communities.

The vision is led by the Kent Council leaders, a partnership of councils that provide services, but shaped by of representatives from the public, private, voluntary and community sectors.

Three big ambitions

Vision for Kent 2012 to 2022 is written around 3 big ambitions for Kent:

1. Grow the economy

This means supporting businesses to be successful, improving skills and career aspirations, providing apprenticeships and training opportunities, and improving Kent’s infrastructure to support business, such as good transport and high-speed broadband.

2. Tackle disadvantage

This means a good quality of life for everyone - helping unemployed people get back into work, encouraging Kent’s young people to make the most of opportunities to learn and prepare for their future, and providing choice and quality in health and social care and housing.

3. Put the citizen in control

This means involving people in making decisions, working with them to design services that meet their needs and suit them, and supporting Kent’s voluntary and community sector to do even more to improve the lives of people in Kent.
