The Kensington & Chelsea Foundation was set up in 2008. They raise money and in-kind support for a network of excellent charities and partners that have the skills and expertise to tackle the inequalities and hardships faced by some people in their community. The work of these charities is wide-ranging and includes helping people with disabilities, physical and mental health issues, education and employment opportunities, families and young people, older people and those affected by homelessness.
Kensington & Chelsea has a reputation as an area of great prosperity and privilege but it also has pockets of severe deprivation. The life chances of significant numbers of local people are seriously limited by problems such as poverty, a lack of opportunity, poor physical or mental health and isolation.
Their vision is a Borough where no one is held back by lack of opportunity, where local people, schools and businesses work together to strengthen our community.
