Coin street community builders

As a long-standing and committed member of the London South Bank community, it has always been important that we, as a firm, find ways to deliver value to the people living and working around us.

Coin Street is a social enterprise operating various programmes within SE1 in London. The positive impact they are having on young people across the area is significant and making a real difference to their futures.

We host fundraising events, mentor young entrepreneurs and run skills workshops. Our activities help Coin Street continue to deliver life-changing programmes in south-east London.

Both Gate One and Coin Street share a strong entrepreneurial spirit which helps us work effectively together to support our community. Our consultants also benefit from their experiences. Finding the right CSR partner was important to us to ensure we leave a lasting effect.


At the end of 2018, we announced that we will now also begin supporting FareShare, through both fundraising and volunteer days. FareShare is the UK’s largest charity fighting hunger and food waste. They redistribute surplus food from the food industry with the help of volunteers.

Last year FareShare distributed food to 9,653 frontline charities and community groups, where it is turned into meals for nearly 772,390 vulnerable people every week. That is enough food for nearly 3.67 million meals over the course of the year.
