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.

Building a new organisation


Whether you’re motivated by a desire to address injustice, have identified an unmet need or just want to give something back to the community, building a new organisation involves a lot hard work but the results can be incredibly worthwhile and fulfilling

Here are a few things to consider before setting up a new organisation:

What is the difference you want to make?

The Report of The Scrutiny Panel

'Scrutiny' is a Councillor-led statutory function within the Council. It holds decision-makers to account on behalf of borough residents. Please find the report of the Panel appointed to oversee the detail of the new arrangements for scrutiny and prioritisation of the scrutiny work programme. Recommendations to the Council will be made on 24 July. 

Strategic planning

What?  Strategic planning means analysing your past and present situation, and thinking ahead to develop a project or an organisation. In other words: where you are now, where you want to be, and how you are going to get there.

Why? Not only to secure the survival of your organisation or project, but also to ensure it reaches its full potential.

KCSC's response to the Borough and Governance Review Recommendations - 25 April 2019

KCSC has engaged with RBKC’s Governance Review since its inception. Prior to this, we have worked in partnership with the Volunteer Centre Kensington and Chelsea to support the Centre for Public Scrutiny and Democracy Society to engage with local people and the voluntary and community sector in its review of the RBKC’s governance and decision-making structures. We have facilitated discussions through KCSC’s Grenfell Network Group meetings, submitted collective responses as the review has progressed, and attended and contributed to the Panel’s open meetings.
