As a result, SEGRO donated over £60,000, which funded 13 community projects, helping vulnerable Londoners improve their lives. Last night at the House of Commons, there was a celebration of the success of the Fund and the charities which have benefited, hosted by Ruth Cadbury MP and Andy Gulliford, Chief Operating Officer, SEGRO.

Of the 13 grants awarded, nine of the organisations focussed on young people and four on homeless people or those at risk of homelessness. In 2015 the fund helped change the lives of 594 individuals. Over a third of the beneficiaries have disabilities or poor mental health, and yet 89 residents (almost 15%) that participated in the project secured employment, with a further 74 going into education and training and 9 securing apprenticeships.

In 2016, SEGRO increased the number of community projects it funded to 18, with the results to be reviewed in 2017.

Andy Gulliford, Chief Operating Officer, SEGRO, said: “We are delighted to celebrate the successes of our London Community Fund and to see how our investment has really helped people and projects in the communities where we operate. Giving back to the community is part of SEGRO’s ethos and we look forward to continuing our support of local communities through this fund.”

The London Community Fund was launched in partnership with the London Community Foundation, an organisation that works with donors to invest in charities and community projects throughout London.
