Design Changes Lives Foundation

A variety of initiatives and projects emphasising the very real value of good design.

The main focus is threefold:

Design for Living - enhancing environments for buildings and gardens for healing and care.

We will provide some funding, as well as expertise, to help make effective changes and improvements to healing and care environments such as schools, hospitals, hospices, youth clubs and refuges. This will involve teams of staff, students, alumni and members of the garden and interior design communities, who will bring their skills and practical endeavours to particular projects. Areas that could be addressed would include the comfort, functionality, ambiance, practicality and psychology of these spaces.

Young Designers Programme - inspiring and encouraging young designers.

We work with local Councils and schools to give talks and run competitions to raise awareness about the potential of interior or garden design as a career.

Bursaries - to foster talent

We will occasionally provide bursaries for outstandingly talented students to study at KLC for whom this would not otherwise be financially viable.
