Some of its programmes include Love to Learn, an education programme for refugee young people; Elders Programme, a social and wellbeing programme for older people; and Battersea Together, a partnership of local organisations working to improve the lives of Battersea residents.

The charity is seeking a new CEO who embodies its values and who will bring the strategic and operational leadership that ensures that KLS continues to deliver and expand its programmes in genuine co-production with the communities it serves. The ideal candidate will have experience of leading a complex organisation in the voluntary sector, working with diverse stakeholders and communities, developing sustainable income streams and managing change.
