What we do

We help local people support the issues + communities that matter to them

Kensington and Chelsea is a borough usually associated with affluence and wealth, but it also has areas of severe deprivation and significant inequalities.  The Foundation is an independent charity, set up in 2008 by local resident, Jeremy Raphaely, who was aware of these challenges in our borough and was determined to gain support from like-minded people to help address them. 

Our vision is of a borough where everyone has the opportunity to live happy, healthy, fulfilled lives. To achieve our vision, we use our extensive local knowledge and networks to support our charity partners and connect donors to the most vital issues in the community.

Last year, the projects we supported reached 21,600 residents with support and services providing a lifeline to those in crisis.  

“They are an invaluable organisation that has listened to and understood the needs and ambitions of the local community and has raised valuable funds to support those needs.”
