Welcome to the Canterbury District Community Portal
The Community Portal is set up through the Neighbourhood Development Service at Canterbury City Council in partnership with CaDVAS (Canterbury District Voluntary Action and Support), and helps you to find out information about local community groups and other organisations in our district; including event listings and job vacancies.

- Update your details whenever you like
- List latest events for the public to view
- Advertise any job vacancies
- Provides links to other useful websites
For support with registering your group please see our step by step guide.
We hope you find our Community Portal useful, if you would like to find out further information or need advice in using this site please contact:
A social enterprise is a business that is driven by a social or environmental purpose. But it's a business without shareholders or owners, and all profits are reinvested back into the business, which in turn benefits the community.
An example of a social enterprise is the Fairtrade chocolate company, Divine Chocolate, Jamie Oliver's restaurant, Fifteen and the Big Issue magazine are also social enterprises.
