As well as operating as an independent charitable foundation funding voluntary and charity groups and research, we also have two subsidiaries helping us to achieve our mission of tackling poverty and inequality across London - Resource for London and Bellingham Community Project.
Resource for London
Resource for London is a registered charity and wholly owned subsidiary of Trust for London which has been designed to provide the support, facilities and services that the thousands of charitable organisations in London require in order to meet London’s needs. It is where London's voluntary sector comes together to work, meet and exhibit. For the last 25 years the Centre has grown to become a key hub for the sector providing offices, conference, training and meeting rooms, offices and exhibition space.
Bellingham Community Project
Since the 1930s the Trust has owned playing fields in Bellingham, Lewisham, London SE6.
Bellingham is one of the poorest wards in the London Borough of Lewisham located in South East London. Bellingham Community Project (BCP) was originally established by the Trust for London and registered as a charity in 1993. It has a long leasehold interest in a 12 acre site owned by the Trust for London.

Today is #HumanRightsDay . Human rights are relevant to all of us, every day, & our shared humanity is rooted in these universal values. That’s why today is a day to #StandUp4HumanRights , which this year puts a spotlight on young people playing a crucial role in positive change pic.twitter.com/EyKBJBOz5s10 Dec 2019

New @ONS data shows that wealth #inequality in the UK has increased over the past decade as rising debt falls hardest on low income families. The widening gap between rich and poor has a detrimental effect on the whole of society http://bit.ly/2ruY7TF9 Dec 2019
