Did you know how we help the community? Here at Regent’s Place we like to give something back.
We have a dedicated team who work with local community partners to support the great work they do in the local area and provide schools with areas and volunteers to enable educational programmes to take place on campus.

Below are just some of the projects which we have helped this summer through donations and fundraising to lending skilled professionals and hosting community events. 

Fitzrovia Youth in Action Football League
Each week members of the Regent’s Place Management Team and Service Partner companies get fit together at Warren Pitch by taking part in Fitzrovia Youth in Action’s lunchtime football league. All money raised goes towards supporting the organisations vital work with young people in the area and allows them to provide school children the highest standard of playing surface throughout the week.

Grenfell Tower Appeal
In partnership with neighbouring Netley Primary School, we organised a collection appeal for the survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire. Within just 24 hours’ notice, we were able to collect 2 cage-loads of items which were delivered to them the next day.

Creative Curriculum and Young Readers Programmes
The annual Creative Curriculum programme and the new Young Readers Programme, both sponsored by British Land were successfully delivered to children from Netley, Christchurch and St Aloysius schools with the support of 10 Regent’s Place staff donating approximately 40 hours of their time. Occupiers also supported the Young Readers programme hosting educational activities for the children.

St Aloysius School Careers Day
Members of Regent’s Place Management Team and Service Partner companies visited St Aloysius Primary School to speak to pupils at the school's Careers Day event. It was an exciting opportunity to create links between the classroom and the workplace and build aspirations for the children. The children were very engaged and the experience was enjoyed by all.

Netley Primary School Reading Volunteering
Emma Gordon, Communications and Events Manager at Regent’s Place visits the local Netley Primary School, giving up one lunchtime per week to support two children in developing their reading skills.

Going the Extra Mile
Our Mechanical and Engineering service provider volunteered their time and resources to install an external tap with cover at local community space H-Pod, which is managed by our community partner West Euston Partnership. The tap was needed for a gardening project which couldn't start without it.
