The Way We Work
At Katherine Low Settlement we are driven by our vision and mission and led by our values. The approach we take to our work is as important as the work itself. We work ‘with’ people and communities and don’t do things ‘to’ or ‘at’ them – we involved them in the development and delivery of our work and services, being responsive to their needs. We’re in it for the long-haul (90 years and counting) as people and communities take time to change and prosper.
We would look to working with any partner in this manner – developing a strong, practical, and long term relationship. We look forward to hearing from you. To discuss how you could get involved contact Aaron Barbour on 020 7223 2845 and [email protected]
