Our Approach

Home / Our Approach


Katharine Howard Foundation (KHF) is an independent Foundation focused on improving the lives of young children and their families. The Foundation does this through working with others to identify needs, building on existing initiatives, formulating new initiatives, making strategic grants, gathering and sharing learning, contributing to the development of policy and practice and protecting the Foundation’s endowment fund.


The key principles that underpin KHF’s work are:

  • A belief that KHF can make a difference through focused interventions based on collaboration, reflective learning, adding value and flexibility.
  • A commitment to equality and overcoming disadvantage and to promote equality of opportunity for all children.
  • A commitment to apply respect, integrity and empathy in all aspects of KHF’s work.
  • A commitment to transparency and accountability throughout all KHF’s work.
