Katherine Low Settlement
Group From 17/5/1924
A charity founded as part of the settlement movement, in tribute to philanthropist Katherine Mackay Low who had died the year before. It supports after-school projects and a youth club for young people with learning difficulties. For older people there is a pensioners lunch club, and a mental health drop-in and support group for carers of people with long term mental health problems. The settlement movement was a reformist social movement, beginning in the 1880s, with a goal of getting the rich and poor in society to live more closely together.
