Make a difference in 2022

Volunteer, mentor and donate at Regent’s Place

Regent’s Place is one of London’s most diverse communities and it’s our links to local people, charities, social enterprises and initiatives that contribute to an inspirational neighbourhood that’s striving to make a difference for everyone. 

Whether you want to volunteer, mentor or donate in 2022 or just want to find out about different projects that Regent’s Place has supported recently, here are some of the ways we’re working together. 

 

Things you can do to make a difference

Donate to our Giving Box

Head to Plaza and you’ll discover our contactless Giving Box. This is to help us raise money for Camden Giving, a local charity working to tackle inequality in the borough of Camden. Donations can be made by using the contactless machine within the box where you simply tap your bank card or phone to donate £5 or use the buttons to increase your donation to £10, £15 or £20. Your kind donations will help Camden Giving sustain their mission by supporting services that matter most to local people; everything from baby banks, winter night shelters and opportunities for young people.

Support the Regent’s Place Community Fund

The Regent’s Place Community Fund brings together customers, suppliers and community partners to make a real difference to the local area and help smaller community organisations. On our doorstop alone, the Regent’s Park Estate is one of England’s most deprived communities with 44.6% of local children living in poverty.  

The RPCF focuses on three priority themes: social cohesion, employability and health and wellbeing. In the first four years, 16 Regent’s Place businesses donated nearly £200,000 in grants for 30 community projects across 15 local organisations. Over 2,600 people benefited in the first year alone.

If you are interested in finding out more about the fund and potentially getting involved, please contact the Regent’s Place Community Fund Manager at marilyn.mensah@regentsplace.com.
