Community Empowerment and Participation Officer – K&C Together Programme

K&C Together (KCT) is a new programme being run by KCSC, with funding from City Bridge Trust.  The programme will support voluntary and community organisations to operate in a representative, inclusive and participatory manner.  The role will  also involve working closely with local communities, designing activities to empower and upskill residents to become actively involved in civil society and in decision-making at every level of local organisations.

Spotlight on local charities

This year, KCSC is celebrating its 60th anniversary of supporting the local voluntary and community sector in Kensington and Chelsea. 

We are planning to celebrate this during the year and we also want to make sure to use this opportunity to highlight some of the great work that local organisations are doing in the borough.

As part of this, we are launching a new feature on our website - every month we will spotlight a local organisation and highlight the great work it's doing through a short 'article' and some photos.

Public Meeting

Kensington and Chelsea Social Council and Grenfell Network Group want to take the opportunity of Purdah, when all structured politics grinds to a halt, to ensure momentum is not lost in our challenge to Council to consider how their Charter for Public Participation. can be a real exemplar through adopting our proposed Charter developed in partnership with the Grenfell Network Group.

KCSC Annual Report 2018/19

We are pleased to introduce our annual report for 2018/19 in which you will be able to read about the work and impact of Kensington and Chelsea Social Council (KCSC) over the year, and see how we have managed all of the funds received.

This year we have designed our annual report differently and moved to an online only full version, seeking to reduce our carbon footprint and to demonstrate our activities and impact more effectively. We hope you enjoy reading the new-look report.
