The Kensington & Chelsea Foundation is a trusted independent charity working in Chelsea and across this borough. One of the local needs they are currently focused on is loneliness and isolation.
Did you know that almost 50 per cent of local older people in this borough live alone?
The K+C Foundation is currently working with 17 local charities on projects to connect people across our community.
One of these charities is Age UK Kensington and Chelsea. It helps older people in the borough to stay independent, active and in touch with others.
Their grant from the K+C Foundation was funded by local people like you.
It means that older residents in Chelsea are offered befriending. They can also enjoy social activities such as language classes, lunch clubs, walking groups, computer lessons, concerts and daytrips.
“There is nothing worse than the feeling of isolation. We all have to feel we belong to the local community, and this project has given me that feeling of belonging.”
So says a local Age UK K&C member.
The foundation raises funds, and in-kind support, which they invest in the best local charities that work to combat need.
Thanks to Cadogan’s ongoing role as principal supporter, 100 per cent of the money donated to them goes directly to local charities and campaigns.
To continue their work to improve local lives, the K+C Foundation needs your support.
Their friendly team can help you every step of the way. They can guide your giving to where it’s needed most and to a cause that’s close to your heart.
