The Chandran Foundation was founded 25 years ago by Cpt. Chandran MBE OBE upon his retirement. Having emigrated to the UK in 1965, he hit his stride in the social housing movement as an advocate of and campaigner for minority people long neglected by mainstream organisations.
As CEO of Presentation Housing Association, he grew the organisation to become the largest BAME-led housing association in the country. This role gave him a unique insight into the barriers to education and success that so many young people in this country faced, and still face today.
Since then, CF has been committed to the empowerment of young people.
