Our Community

We have a strong programme of community investment and we play a vital role in the region's economy

We play an important role in our local area and the region

We have developed a strong programme of community investment and we play a vital role in the regional economy, while working to address the social and environmental issues that matter to local people.

We work with community groups across the region. Bringing people together gives us an opportunity to connect with our neighbours. We're involved with and sponsor many local events and organisations and take pride in supporting our charity partners and the Gatwick Foundation Fund.

Our Economic Value report says, a strong Gatwick would support the region to grow and diversify. This would attract new and start-up technology and green industry to the local area and region.
