A vital supporter of the regional and national economy, we invest in our local community
We invest in our community
We have a strong programme of community investment. We support a range of initiatives and events across Surrey, Sussex and Kent.
Our Economic Value report says a strong Gatwick could generate £8.4bn for the South East by 2028. That's the same as 50,000 jobs or 70,000 nurses.
We inform, inspire and invest in young people and we open up the world of opportunities to everyone. We develop the right skills for the right job.
We value working with our neighbours and the wider community across the region. We engage in a variety of ways to find out about what matters to people and keep them up to date about airport issues. We also work with community groups and industry bodies on a range of issues of interest and concern.
One of the ways we participate in community debate is through the Gatwick Airport Consultative Committee (GATCOM), the airport’s formal consultative body, who meet quarterly.
It's run by West Sussex County Council with an independent chairperson and 32 committee members from groups across the region, representing a wide range of interests including civil aviation, passenger services, business development, tourism and environmental issues.
We host regular engagement events for local community representatives, providing a behind the scenes view of the busiest single runway operation in the world and an opportunity to meet members of the London Gatwick team to discuss the important issues for local people.
If you represent the community in your area (e.g., neighborhood, parish, town, district and county councilors) and would like to attend an event, get in touch with the team.
