Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

The Yellow Pavilion Community Centre

Our community engagement strategy at Wembley Park aims to foster a vibrant and happy community by bringing together existing residents, workers, students and local groups through a robust, balanced and accessible programme at our community centre, the Yellow Pavilion.

As our business model is now aligned towards Build to Rent, the requirement to make Wembley Park feel like a great place to live is paramount. Community engagement is key to the success of Wembley Park’s vision; providing stability to the new Tipi residents and connecting them with the existing Wembley Park community.

The programme of events is constantly evolving and adaptable to meet local needs. Activities are organised by local people, so many feel community owned. There is a variety of activities to meet a wide range of needs and ages, from yoga, a youth hub, street dance, kick boxing, urban gardening, crochet, open mic nights to tai chi.
