We aim to reduce poverty and inequality in the borough of Kingston by raising funds to give grants to local charities. We encourage donations large and small to build our community foundation fund and the money stays local. Love Kingston is a project of Kingston Voluntary Action, a Charitable Incorporated Organisation.Why the community needs us
Being connected to where we live, work and learn creates healthy and happy communities. Sadly too many residents in our rapidly growing, ageing and diversifying borough are isolated from both people and place. Losing loved ones, language barriers, and mental health are just some of the challenges local people face. Our grant making has supported a wide variety projects tackling isolation and encouraging integration. To find out more please visit: https://www.lovekingston.org.uk/Our impact on the community
One of our grants helped to provide hot food and social assistance once a week to homeless and vulnerable people in Kingston, many with physical and mental health issues. "We did not anticipate quite so much need! Attendees rose from an average of 16 in January 2018 to 65 in February 2019."
Love Kingston is looking for volunteer data entry volunteers, Digital Champions and communications.
