Watching out for your neighbourhood
We are in partnership with the London Neighbourhood Watch Association (LNWA) whose aim is to make communities a safer, better place to live and work. We promote issues of security and safety and create practical solutions. LNWA work closely with the Metropolitan Police and Home Office and in London alone, a fifth of all properties are members of a local Neighbourhood Watch scheme, which reflects a high level of community spirit and support from property owners towards building a better community.
Corporate Social Responsibility
We encourage staff to become involved in local community activities, charity work, and to create their own CSR Projects.
DryLandDryClothes #WrapUp1000, was initiated by members of our CSR group, coming together with individuals and charitable groups across London. The project is providing warm clothing and essential aid to child refugees and their families on the isle of Lesvos this winter. Impressively, the team have raised enough funds to take a 40 foot lorry full of donations to Greece, and have received an extraordinary amount of donated clothing from the public. DryLandDryClothes is a wonderful example of the collective effort of individuals coming together to make a difference. It is a great cause, close to all our hearts, and KHC are delighted to support this project. We will be posting updates on this project here, so watch this space!
KHC recently donated extra holiday allowance to Moaaz from our Finance Team to support his volunteer work as a Senior Mentor in the government funded National Citizen Service programme, The Challenge. The Challenge is a three-week programme running twice annually, offering young people aged 15-17 the opportunity to engage in a wide range of experiences designed to develop their skill sets. During their time with the programme, the young people work with their team towards the delivery of a project that aims to make a real difference to their local communities.

SKILL!, produced by social enterprise Visionpath, is a programme of interactive one-day workshops where school students work with professionals from top employers to devise and pitch big ideas, as a way of helping students develop vital employability skills.
