The Prosperity Programme

Hammerson’s Prosperity Programme incorporates the employment, skills, training and enterprise schemes in place across our existing assets and development projects.

Structured programmes are delivered across our development projects and operational assets. These involve educational workshops; employment & skills brokerage and work with start up enterprises to create jobs.  All our shopping centre assets have a target to deliver at least six community engagement events per annum, with at least four of these delivering against our Skills and Employment ambitions. 

National Prosperity Programme Partners

To create and deliver the umbrella strategy for The Prosperity Programme, it's important we work with National skills, employment and enterprise organisations. As such, we have a target to strengthen relationships with community and third sector organisations to optimise the positive impacts of our investments. 

Our Partners at National Level include, but are not limited to:

East London Business Alliance

National Skills Academy

Lives not Knives

Let’s Talk Shop

Retail Trust

Passion Project


Local Prosperity Programme Partners

The Prosperity Programme includes a number of recognised and successful projects that work in specific communities that surround our assets.  Some great examples include our two schemes focused on developing retail skills, in order to optimize the positive local impacts of the major retail development happening over the next five to ten years. Let’s Talk Retail at Brent Cross and Retail Pathway at High Cross, Leicester have both delivered great results.  See more on the these programmes.
