We are thrilled to jointly announce a formal partnership between the QPR in the Community Trust and West London Zone which will launch this summer.

After months of jointly delivered activities such as holiday sports camps, in-school multi-sports programmes and online sessions during lockdown for children and young people – our partnership will maximise our joint impact and increase opportunities in our shared community reaching children who most need support.

The QPR in the Community Trust address local needs and make a difference to individuals and our communities by addressing the needs within them. Offering programmes and activities for residents aged 3-90 years old, the Trust reaches over 23,000 annual participants across seven London Boroughs. Driven by local needs by partners and stakeholders, they strive to be positive role models promoting positive change.

QPR’s commitment to creating a stronger community where everyone can thrive aligns perfectly WLZ’s vision of a West London community working together so that every child can thrive. By working together across a broad spectrum of activities, we are creating opportunities and delivering positive outcomes for children and young people in our Zone in a joined-up way. Working with QPR means so much to us as a key organisation in our neighbourhood and it means so much to the children that we work with. Thank you QPR for your support!" West London Zone’s CEO, Louisa Mitchell

In this school year, West London Zone is working with 1,313 children, aged 3-18, in 45 school settings across Brent, Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster – and in September 2022 we will be reaching even more children and communities.

We are committed to helping to address local needs & make a difference to individuals & our local communities. To make that difference we really need to partner with like-minded organisations who care about our local neighbourhoods. West London Zone share that passion for supporting people to fulfil their potential." QPR in the Community Trust CEO, Andy Evans

Building on the successful delivery of activities and trips to date, QPR and West London Zone will be raising the profile of our joint vision, sharing opportunities to reach people in the community and providing children and young people in west London with a lot of fun!

After announcing that West London Zone would be introducing a QPR-led afterschool sports club, Link Worker Abbie Westman said: “The boys thought I must be a local celebrity, it seriously upped my cool points to have QPR coaches in and running sessions and they loved being able to take them over there in the holidays! Thank you for sharing your skills with us.”

We look forward to seeing how our relationship grows into the new season and no doubt we will be top of the league for young people on the West London Zone programme.
