Working with London's Business Community
Working with businesses
Team London has been growing the capital’s volunteering movement and we could not have done this without the help of business. Many organisations in London are already doing amazing work with our communities. We want to help you to do even more – for your staff, your communities and London as a whole.
As we grow in the UK, we recognise the importance of investing in our local community, and in the innovative organisations that are fuelling social change and making London a better place to live and work. Our partnership with Team London has been invaluable in making that happen. Chris Jackson Executive Vice President and Head of International Product, Natixis Global Asset Management.

The Commitment recognises businesses who commit to the importance of social action in staff development and the recruitment of young people. It shines a light on the amazing work that organisations across the capital are doing to support young people and the communities in which they work.
