Bringing the borough together  

Kensington and Chelsea is a borough usually associated with affluence and wealth, but it also has areas of severe deprivation and significant inequalities. You may not know the following:  

  • K+C has the worst rate of school exclusions in London and 1 in 4 children live in poverty 
  • K+C is in the lowest 20% of Local Authorities for mental health performance and has a huge disparity in life expectancy from street to street 
  • The unemployment rate in K+C is higher than the London average and since 2020 the number of people claiming in-work benefits, reflecting in-work poverty, has tripled.

The K+C Foundation is a local charity set up in 2008 to improve the lives and life chances of our most vulnerable residents. Give Where You Live is our campaign to bring the community together and raise funds to help our neighbours in need.  Get involved, help us raise awareness of our work and much needed funds to support our projects.
