The Kensington & Chelsea Foundation, a trusted, independent local charity with a 10-year record of success, is searching for a dynamic new Director to lead us through an exciting period as we look to significantly grow our work across the borough.
Since 2008, we’ve been bringing together charities, individuals, businesses and schools to address local disadvantage. In that time, we’ve raised almost £13 million, with £6 million specifically supporting local, grassroots charities and £7 million raised in response to the tragedy at Grenfell Tower.
We’ve seen the transformative impact of our work in the borough but there’s so much more to do. We’re looking for someone who shares our ambition, possesses exceptional skills, gravitas and experience, who will lead and inspire our small team and work closely with our Board of Trustees to scale up our programmes as we enter our next important phase.
Our unparalleled local relationships and in-depth understanding of our borough mean that we are uniquely placed to identify issues which disadvantage local people. We have big ambitions to significantly raise the level of funds, building on our track record which is most recently and notably illustrated in our role in relation to Grenfell.
As well as raising funds and other in-kind resources, we inspire change by sharing our ideas and research and through partnerships. We work closely with our local charity partners and with input from local people to ensure the funding we raise is used to best effect and goes where it’s needed most. Our current focus is on supporting children and young people, enhancing skills and employment and combating isolation and loneliness.
