Become a Champion!


We are working with residents across Regents Park Estate to benefit fellow residents and the health and wellbeing across the estate – we have young people aged 12-24 and community members 24+ – (no age cap) – sometimes the groups work separately, on other projects they work together.
We meet every week on a Wednesday 5:30pm at Old Diorama Arts Centre and you are more than welcome to join us too! We have also been hosting a weekly Community Kitchen (Dec 2023-July 2023 hoping to restart Sep 2023) and regular socials to bring residents together to be able to tell their stories, voice concerns and provide peer support and hopefully do more community action!

Contact coordinator or text/whatsapp or call 07923849277.

We have brilliant partners and supporting organisations including Regents Park Tenants Association, Bengali Workers Association, Old Diorama Arts Centre, Regents Place, Regent’s Park Children’s Centre, Netley Primary School, Christchurch Primary School, Regent’s Park Job Hub, Regent’s Park Royal Parks Community Team, Local and Camden Police, Camden Participation team, Central St Martins Camden Tenants Participation and Housing and many more specific to projects.

As said by champions…

As part of our recent conference ‘Resident Led Change in Regent’s Park Estate’ we included a headphone audio tour. If you missed it you can hear about the project completely from champions and guardians themselves here!

We a group of young champions called YOUNG GUARDIANS also organising activities on behalf of the community!!
