Our Partners

Future of London engages with a select group of partners who share our priorities and support our work. As a not-for-profit, we rely on financial contributions to help run projects and keep events free of charge, but partnering with Future of London is about much more than funding: we share connections, expertise, content – and the convivial atmosphere that comes with doing what we love.

Partner with us

If you’re interested in supporting what we do and getting to know our network, contact Nicola Mathers.

Partnering with us typically involves a level of financial sponsorship combined with opportunities to speak at events, contribute research, host seminars or site visits, mentor our Leaders candidates and more. This mix provides the chance to be a trusted ‘thought leader’ in your sector and to make meaningful connections with existing and new audiences.

Partners join a core community of organisations contributing in a meaningful way to London’s future. Partners can engage on a personal level with key London influencers, including decision-makers from local, regional and central government, housing associations, leading private-sector firms, SMEs, and more. We have events and networking opportunities year-round for ongoing relationship-building.

“Future of London is making an invaluable contribution… bringing public and private sector practitioners together to debate major regeneration issues, whilst nurturing new talent at a time when it is needed more than ever.”
Gerry Hughes, Principal & President Europe, Avison Young

“Future of London brings the public and private sectors together in a safe, respectful and productive way. I’ve found working with Future of London enlightening, motivating and often demanding! Partners can challenge each other and, in doing so, understand each other and grow together.”
Kieron Hyams, Associate Director, Arup
