The Kids Network was founded in 2016 because of a huge need; the twinned problems of accelerated gentrification next to stark inequality of wealth and opportunity.
This has challenged the cohesiveness of our communities, particularly in London.
We are a society of hyper connected yet isolated human beings living side by side. London’s neighbourhoods are transforming drastically and our communities are changing too.
Our Founder, Sarah, felt passionately that there was a solution, a very simple way to bridge the divide and bring back the human in connection.
She wanted to build and inspire a new generation of young professionals like herself to channel their energy for good, to pay it forward.
The Kids Network was founded to support wellbeing, increase belonging and most importantly create fun for those excluded.
The Kids Network became a reality and was launched to the public in late 2016 and quickly after followed a small scale pilot in 2017.
The promising impact and evidence from the pilot enabled us to grow our team, gather support and build interest.
In 2018 we are connecting communities of young professionals and young people across three inner city London boroughs; Camden, Hackney and Southwark.
This is only the beginning. The journey starts here. Let’s connect for change.
