Gatwick’s status as a major source of employment in the South East means we have a significant responsibility towards our local community. Our work with the community is an integral part of Gatwick being trusted as a good neighbour.
Our community programme continues to be led by our contribution to the Gatwick Airport community Trust – an independent charity that provides grants totalling over £175,000 a year to local community groups.
Our charitable programme is led by our support for St Catherine’s Hospice, and Gatwick’s own on-airport charity Travelcare which offers support for our passengers at time of need.
We also continue to work with Gatwick Greenspace to deliver a programme of activities that improves the health, biodiversity and educational value of the airport’s green estate.
In 2011 we are revitalising our approach to community engagement, and will look to involve our airport partners, passengers and staff to help create a true community approach. We need to know the issues that are important to our neighbours and develop a community programme that reflects this.
