WHEM Group was first formed in 1997 as a support group and a project of the Welwyn Hatfield Council for Voluntary Service (as it was known then).

Kaleidoscope Enterprise Ltd has developed established ties and activities with statutory agencies, bodies and other charities in the Welwyn Hatfield and neighbouring areas. Representatives from our organisation also sit on various county and region-wide policy-making groups in order to help respond to the needs of a diverse population within the community.

As a small, independent charity we rely on members and other volunteers and associated groups to implement the work and support the small staff team and Board. To become a Board Advisor, Director or Volunteer contact us direct to apply.
