Children + Young People

Empowering young people to fulfil their potential

37.3% of children in RBKC live in poverty

End Child Poverty, 2019

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.

Over the next 12 months, we aim to reach over 2,600 of the borough’s most disadvantaged and vulnerable children and young people, improving their lives and life chances.

  • £5,000 could support a residential week in a countryside activity centre for 30 children who have limited access to outdoor spaces

  • £10,000 could support high quality music education sessions for socially excluded 4-6 year olds for six months
  • £17,000 could support delivery of a 6 week intensive development programme for 12 young people at high risk of gang involvement and youth violence
  • £20,000 could support a series of 8 workshops with 20 at risk young people, improving their creative and employment skills

In December 2019 we awarded £127,000 to 12 projects in K+C.  We are currently raising funds to support these and other projects in 2020.
