British High Commission

Kingston is UK's third largest Mission in the Americas (after Washington and Bogota). The High Commission has a close working relationship with the Jamaican authorities and there are nine government departments and agencies represented on the staff comprising Political/Media, Defence, Management Trade & Investment, DFID, Visa, Consular, Pensions Sections and a British Council office.

Through the United Kingdom/Jamaica Commonwealth Debt Initiative Arrangement 1999 a provision of approximately thirty million dollars was made to create the Fund. This amount was awarded to KRC to establish the Urban Renewal Trust Fund (URTF) which was incorporated in June 2002 an approved charitable organization. The Fund was later renamed as the Kingston Restoration Foundation (KRF).

The functions of the URTF have been retained under the new construct. These functions are centered on the provision of support to community groups in the form of small grants for projects particularly relating to education, economic development and job creation, capacity building, environment and shelter, infrastructure improvement and poverty reduction.
