Empowering young people to fulfil their potential
Children + Young People
1 in 4 children in Kensington + Chelsea live in poverty
Bi-Borough Inclusion Strategy, 2021
We support local partners working to transform young lives, especially those affected by gangs, crime, violence, poor physical and mental health, disability, language barriers, lack of green spaces and poor air quality. This year we have supported over 1800 children and young people.
Over the next 12 months, we aim to reach more of the borough’s most disadvantaged and vulnerable children and young people, improving their lives and life chances.
