Westfield in the Community
Westfield London is an active member of the local community and takes pride in contributing to many local organisations as well as supporting our national partners, Choose Love, Spread a Smile and Save the Children. Our support for local communities is varied and involves working with various charities throughout the year, providing an inclusive and accessible space at the heart of the community, that not only drives growth of the local economy but also encourages positive environmental responsibility and a platform for arts and culture. We also provide opportunities for local charitable organisations to drive awareness of their work within the centre. We have worked closely with a number of local organisations such as Grenfell Speaks, Jack Tizard school, Queensmill School, The Royal College of Art, and many more.
Jobs and Training
Jobs and training are a key component of Westfield London’s commitments to the local community, with a particular focus on apprenticeships and opportunities for young people.
Westfield London helped to create 20,000 jobs since opening in 2008, both as a direct employer and by attracting world-class retailers.
Westfield London has worked in partnership with WorkZone, originally formed between Westfield London, the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham and JobCentre Plus to assist retailers and contractors to recruit locally, and to alert residents and jobseekers of available opportunities and to assist jobseekers to gain access to the right employment and skills training for jobs at Westfield London. WorkZone has broadened its scope and now supports access to jobs and training for local people by working with a range of employers and training providers across the borough and beyond. Our partnership with WorkZone is as strong as ever and we will continue to use the service as our preferred partner to support access to opportunities we create.
