The K & C Foundation won the Community Hero category in the Chelsea Awards. It is committed to changing local lives.



A trusted independent charity, the Kensington & Chelsea Foundation has been working tirelessly across the borough since 2008.

They bring individuals, families, businesses and schools together to support local people.

There is lots to celebrate locally, but not everyone has the same opportunities.

Every day in this prosperous borough:

• a child goes hungry – 31.6 per cent of local children are living in poverty.

• people are desperately seeking work – we have high rates of unemployment compared with London and national averages.

• people are lonely – almost 50 per cent of local older people live alone.

Over the years, the K&C Foundation has developed expertise about these and other local issues. They’re dedicated to working with local people towards solutions.

They do this by raising funds, which they invest in the best local community groups and charities that work to combat pressing needs.


Cadogan has recently become Principal Supporter of the K&C Foundation’s running costs, which ensures that 100 per cent of the money they raise from donors goes direct to local charities to address local needs.

Susan Dolton, Director of the Foundation, (pictured) says: “We’ve been hugely grateful for Cadogan’s support for a number of years, and their recent transformative gift is a wonderful endorsement of what we do and reflects their passion for the local area.

“It means we can focus entirely on encouraging more local people to join us in raising more vital funds to help those who are less fortunate.”

We ask everyone who can to donate and join their family of supporters working to change local lives.


The K&C Foundation team can help you every step of the way, guiding your giving to where it’s needed most and to a cause that’s near your heart and home.
