Description: Katherine Low Settlement is a much-loved, busy charity that has been serving Battersea and the wider Wandsworth community since 1924. Our vision is for an inclusive society where people achieve their potential together. We foster and empower communities in our neighbourhood to reduce poverty and isolation. We run a range of our own community projects to support children, young people and families, older people and refugee communities. In addition to these direct services, we also use our premises to act as a local hub for other charities and community groups so that as partners, we can meet the diverse needs of the communities of Wandsworth. Each week we work with 45+ charities and community groups supporting more than 1,100 people.

We are still in the process of adding more organisations to this list and we will publish them as soon as we received them.
