  • Mission statement

    The Katherine Low Settlement’s (KLS) principle charitable purposes are:

    * To relieve and prevent the effects of poverty, disadvantage and discrimination.
    * To foster community cohesion
    * To promote social inclusion and reduce isolation, increasing health and well-being of those on the margins of the local community.
    * To consider the needs of all people but with special regard to those of young people.

    The principle objectives of the charity are:

    1. To identify and develop services required to address these aims principally within the local Battersea community in the London Borough of Wandsworth (in some projects the service is borough-wide). Wherever possible we support people to identify their own needs and make decisions about the services and activities provided, to increase self-determination and ownership.

    2. To support the work of other local organizations and projects meeting these objectives by providing office space and rooms for activities for rent and hire and facilitating, accessible, effective and full use of the Settlement building. Up to 900 service users use the Settlement each week.

    3. To participate in wider community development networks and work together with other voluntary and statutory organizations where it will enhance our specified aims.
