Report from our Charity Partners: Kensington & Chelsea Foundation

A report has been prepared by our charity partners, Kensington & Chelsea Foundation (KACF) to share with our members:


Short excerpt:

At first glance, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is a picture of wealth and prosperity, with an economy ranking among the top 10% of UK local authorities in the recently published UK Prosperity Index1. However, these economic headlines mask significant variations in outcomes between different communities in the borough.

“The thing about RBKC is that it’s different to everywhere else…it’s the smallest, most densely populated, most diverse, most unequal.”
~ Local Councillor

The Kensington + Chelsea Foundation commissioned WPI Economics to analyse long-standing issues of poverty and inequality in the borough, including any recent impact from the Covid-19 pandemic. This short report summarises the findings, and the full report can be found on the Foundation’s website.
