We are living in extremely unusual times. Whilst our neighbourhood may be quiet, there are a number of things going on in the local community.
At Regent's Place, we're continuing to work with our community partners to identify where and how we can help them, and we wanted to share ways that you can get involved.
Support your local food bank
Euston Foodbank is a vital service for local residents, run by locals who have set up deliveries to make sure they can continue to provide for those that need them.
Without regular donation drives and with more and more families in need, the team need to bring in larger quantities of stock to support the area through this crisis.
Please click here to support them by making a donation. Every donation helps.
Support your community
Sheltering at home can be a very lonely time for our elderly and vulnerable neighbours. If you have time to spare and love to chat, you can support local groups Third Age Project or North London Cares.
These organisations are working with older people in the area to deliver vital services and supplies, and are providing a friendly link to the outside world.
Give your time
We know you’re already doing so much to offer support, but if there are other ways you’d like to help, please contact our Community Manager, Rose Alexander, who is working closely with Regent’s Place community partners and can put you in contact with those who most need your help.
Emergency Response Fund
Locally, we are providing an emergency response fund to support our community partners’ critical work.
Local charity Camden Giving has set up a Camden Covid-19 Charity Fund to support Camden’s charities, community groups and social enterprises. Click here for more information.
Supporting the NHS
We are working closely with University College London Hospital (UCLH), whose staff are on the front line. We are looking to provide support wherever we can through donations of tea and biscuits and use of our site parking for instance.
You can make a donation here, or get in touch with Rose Alexander to explore other ways to offer support including redirecting office food orders or freeing up local car parking spaces.
What else are we doing?
Over the last two weeks, British Land’s Communities team has been working with our network of local partners to identify how together, we can best support them.
Corporate Community Investment Fund
British Land has been able to re-deploy the remaining £250,000 within its corporate Community Investment Fund, directly to help communities across the country respond to the impact of Covid-19 over the next few months.
We have doubled our annual donation to Shelter to £50,000 to support their helpline, which has seen a sharp rise in calls from people worried about their jobs and homes as a result of the virus.
