Kingstanding Regeneration Trust (KRT) is a registered charity working for the area of Kingstanding and its 25,700 residents. It was formed in 2007 to support local residents “to be the change they want to see”, and maximize the potential of community assets and projects.
KRT deliver services that help people gain new skills, achieve qualifications, find work, reduce isolation, improve their health and well-being and become more active in their community.
The Trust is governed by local activists who want to harness local knowledge, and enthusiasm, in order to empower local residents to make sense of the issues which affect their lives and respond appropriately through empowerment and active participation.
KRT also works to encourage partnership working between local organisations, in order to tackle issues collaboratively at a community level.
