Katherine Low Settlement

Bringing Battersea together since 1924

Katherine Low Settlement is a much-loved, busy charity that has been at the heart of the community in Battersea since 1924. We work to reduce poverty and isolation and bring the community together.

Our core programmes support older people, children, families from refugee backgrounds and newly-arrived adults: over 500 people a week visit our building.

We campaign for social change and we partner with other charities and communities to help them to thrive.

"Thank you for all your support regarding my daughter and her education. I’m so grateful that you were able to take this case and support my daughter through very challenging and difficult times. It was a wonderful feeling to know there was somebody like you to advocate for my daughter." Parent of one of our young people
