A Community in Action
Our Work in the Community
Helping to deliver social impact and connecting people
London Scottish House is working with partners within our community to continue connecting businesses, third sector organisations and individuals.
Our partnerships promote strong relationships and opportunity within the community for business, culture and sport. As part of our collaboration people can get involved in events held throughout the year at London Scottish House and other venues.
Support during COVID
During the COVID-19 pandemic, London Scottish House has been working with The Evening Standard’s Christmas Appeal, Food for London Now, to prepare and distribute thousands of meals to those who are in need. With The Evening Standard’s charity partners, The Felix Project and With Compassion, a thousand healthy meals a day are cooked and prepared at London Scottish House to be distributed to some of the most disadvantaged people in London.
As such a versatile space The Drill Hall is the perfect place to support an operation on this scale. In total, Food For London Now, has already provided over 100,000 meals to people in need across London and will continue to for as long as needed. The Drill Hall has been supporting the movement since November and will continue to throughout December, over Christmas, January and possibly longer.
London Scottish House has also been supporting The NHS through the pandemic, acting as a drop in centre and providing an ongoing and vital space to help manage the pandemic.
Veterans for Wildlife
Based at London Scottish House, Veterans for Wildlife is an international charity committed to the protection of wildlife and the world’s critically endangered species. Established by veterans from the Royal Marines and British Army, it deploys highly-skilled and experienced former service personnel to play a key role in conservation and the prevention of wildlife crime. The charity has two main objectives: supporting conservation entities and rangers at grass roots level and the empowerment of military veterans. The charity committed no less than 3,240 hours of ground work to their mission in 2016-17, and saw the lives of so many former service personnel transformed.
Veterans for Wildlife www.veterans4wildlife.org is a registered charity no. 1167815.
Founded by Anna Baker Cresswell in 2007, HighGround provides agricultural and horticultural opportunities to service leavers, reservists and veterans.
The charity believes military skills and experience transfer perfectly into the land based sector due to the hard working ethos, reliability and excellent outdoor skills of veterans.
