About The Kensington & Chelsea Foundation
The Kensington & Chelsea Foundation was set up as a charity in 2008 to raise money and in-kind support for a network of excellent local charities and partners that have the skills and expertise to tackle the inequalities and hardships faced by some people in our 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. Following the tragedy at Grenfell Tower, the Foundation responded quickly to establish a dedicated appeal in which every penny will support those affected and help strengthen the local community.
