Exploring Culture, Identity and Heritage

Young K&C Small Grants 2020

Children and young people can apply for small grants up to £1,500 for projects that explore culture, identity and heritage.

We are encouraging children and young people to lead these projects, to produce and share knowledge and experiences about their communities. We are looking for change making ideas and activities.

All you have to do is come up with a great idea for learning about the cultures, histories and diversity of local communities in Kensington and Chelsea. This could be through food, art, spoken word, history, music, children’s play, sport, photography, film, or any other activities.

Decisions will be made by our grants panel

Deadline Extended to: Wednesday 9 December 2020. Any questions, contact

Laptops for Learning

Young K&C is distributing free laptops and software to young learners, funded by John Lyon's Charity. Laptops enable children to access online teaching from local supplementary schools.

The importance of access to technology has been highlighted by Lockdown. But not all children and young people have good access to online learning.

Supplementary schools provide vital opportunities for additional support in English, Maths, Science, Life Skills and Languages. They are run by small local charities and volunteers.

In Kensington & Chelsea they give extra help to children from African, Albanian, Arabic-speaking, Caribbean, Eritrean, Ethiopian, Georgian, Kurdish, Moroccan, Somali and Turkish families.
