The Charity


The Kensington & Chelsea Foundation raises support from local people, businesses and schools to improve lives across the Royal Borough. In 2015/16 they raised £312,000 for 47 local charities with a further £128,000 worth of in kind goods distributed to help local people.

The key aim of The Kensington & Chelsea Foundation is for everyone in the Borough, wherever they live or whatever their circumstances, to be able to thrive. They champion local charities addressing big issues such as child poverty, people living with disabilities or mental health concerns, homelessness, lack of employment prospects and the health and well-being of local families.

The Charity Commission has announced a unified approach to supporting everyone directly affected by the tragic Grenfell Tower fire. This approach brings together all of the major charities and partners, including the K&C Foundation who have been fundraising since June 14th.

The London Gala Ball welcomes the Kensington and Chelsea Foundation for the second year and delighted to have Susan Dolton – Director of the Foundation and the Mayor of Kensington and Chelsea as Guests of Honour.
