Katherine Low Settlement is a multi-purpose charity that has been serving the communities of Wandsworth since 1924. We are dedicated to building stronger communities and enable people to challenge and find ways out of poverty and isolation.
We run a range of our own community projects to support children, young people and their families, older people and newly-arrived refugee communities. We recognise there are many other expert local charities and community groups working with, for example, disabled people and mental health users. We invite them to operate from our premises – so together as partners we can meet the diverse needs of the local communities of Wandsworth. Each week we work with 38 charities & groups supporting more than 500 people.
Please get in touch to get involved.

“I thought you might like to know that the first photograph on your page “KLS in pictures 1924 to 2014” (see photo montage above) is of myself, Nancy O’Brien (as was then) and David Wingrove. Both David and I went to St Mary’s CofE in Vicarage Crescent. David lived in the local authority flats across the road from St Mary’s and I lived in Simpson Street. I presented a bouquet to the Queen Mother when she visited KLS, although I cannot remember what year that was. David is, I understand, now an author.
I attended KLS from kindergarten to seniors, when Eddie and Jack looked after everyone. I don’t have a clue what made me Google KLS but I was very much surprised to see my photograph on the site. I lived in Battersea up until 1999 when, because of the astronomical house prices, I had to move to Addiscombe.
Glad to know that you are still keeping up the good work KLS has done for so many years. It was such a big part of my youth.
