Love Kingston is thrilled to announce it has awarded 8 charitable groups with grants to fund projects around the theme ‘from isolation to integration’ in 2018.

This year the Love Kingston grants were awarded to the local groups

  • Kingston Carers Network (Young Carers)
  • Learn English at Home (LEAH)
  • The Vintage Banquet
  • The CornerHOUSE
  • Knowledge Advocacy Guidance (KAG)
  • CREst
  • Man & Boy
  • Mencap

 
One of the grantees, LEAH, works with vulnerable ethnic minority adults who are isolated because of their low levels of English.  Kate Brown is Director of LEAH and responded ‘LEAH's work is at the heart of the community and so we are thrilled to enrich our offer with the support of Love Kingston.’
 
Chair of Trustees of the Douglas Centre Trust, Jeremy Thorn, on receiving the news of funding for The CornerHOUSE, said ‘We are delighted that Love Kingston has given us this chance to build on the diversity of our performers and audiences.’

Love Kingston is also proud to grant Man & Boy. MAN&BOY supports boys aged 9-12 years who are struggling with life and an adult, male mentor, from within the family to develop a bond that will last for the long term. Sarah Roberts who administrates the project says, “Many thanks to Love Kingston for their great support for the MAN&BOY programme.”
