Community commitment

Standard Life Investments and Hammerson strongly believe in supporting communities through local partnerships.
  • Community commitment

Our mission is to enhance the ongoing regeneration of the wider Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration area through the creation of jobs, apprenticeship, training and new business opportunities. Alongside this, we support programmes that enable young people to be inspired to take on new challenges and develop new skills and programmes that promote health and wellbeing.

As part of our commitment we specifically look to work with organisations that meet one of three criteria:

Youth engagement

We support organisations that actively engage with young people within the Barnet area. This is particularly targeted at providing new opportunities for children to undertake activities beyond the school gates, supporting 16-24 year olds in further education or into work and creating opportunities for young people to develop new skills.

Local enterprise

We work with local businesses to provide training and support and where possible look to support the establishment of new enterprises and the promotion of business within the Barnet area. We actively seek to work with organisations in supporting the business regeneration of Barnet and providing new job opportunities for local residents.

Health and wellbeing

Working with organisations that promote healthy living and local wellbeing in Barnet, with a particular focus on older residents
