In 2017, Claire and Adam Kenwright set-up the Hope Kenwright Foundation in memory of Adam’s grandmother and began a 3-year series of donations and philanthropy to theatres, arts-based charities and causes close to their hearts. That charitable entity has now become the Kindred Foundation, which with initial financial support from Adam, Claire and each one of the Kindred Partners team, will be dedicated to creating opportunities in the workplace via paid 2-year apprenticeships, working with Kindred Partners as well as additional screen and stage production entities.

Kindred Partners will donate a percentage of gross revenue to the Kindred Foundation. Our focus is to extend opportunities to individuals from protected characteristic demographics, and those social economic groups not normally able to afford to begin a career in the London or New York arts sector without financial support.
