Love Kingston is a fund of the London Community Foundation, working in partnership with Kingston Voluntary Action. Love Kingston was launched on 4 October 2012, initially funded by the Office for Civil Society
Our vision is of a strong and generous community – where residents, businesses, community groups and government act collectively to create a fair and good society for all who live or work in the borough.
It is easy to forget about the thousands of residents left on the margins. Wealth and poverty live side by side, with middle class terraces, green spaces and trendy high streets blending into run-down estates and empty playgrounds.
Inspiring local charitable causes are achieving extraordinary things, offering lifelines to local residents with very limited resources. Their future depends on securing small but vital amounts of funding to reach people in need.
Love Kingston is the only borough-wide local giving platform that responds to the changing needs of local people.
