About us

Kainé Management Ltd is a registered charity and company limited by guarantee. Our work is overseen by a board of trustees and delivered by employees, freelancers and volunteers.

What’s with the name?

We’re glad you asked. ‘Kainé’ is a Greek word meaning ‘new’, as in ‘new life’ or ‘new beginning’. It’s pronounced ‘kye – nay’. We’re officially called Kainé Management Ltd because we started out in artist management.

What do we do?

Here at Kainé we work across three key areas – Arts, Community and Education.

We design programmes to meet the needs that we see in our local community. We work with groups including senior citizens, teenage parents, young people seeking opportunities, asylum seekers and refugees.

All our work aims at creating equality of opportunity, supporting those who most need it, and raising aspiration and achievement. Inclusion, connection and empowerment are at the centre of everything we do.

Where do we get our funding from?

Some of our work is funded by grants from donors and sponsors. This includes Children in Need, and the Big Lottery Fund.

We have a special sponsorship with De Montfort university who provide Kainé with grants and resources which further enables the programmes we are able to provide. Click here for more information. 

We also provide products and services that we charge that goes towards our programmes that we provide. You can support us in several ways – see our  Get Involved page for details!
