As an environmentally conscious hotel, The Langham, London is committed to reducing its operating footprint. To preserve our world for future generations, we have applied policies and initiatives to meet our underlying responsibilities. 


We also seek to build closer relationships with our local community. To achieve this, we have an annual community involvement programme to provide volunteering opportunities for our staff.

Our annual community programme enables staff to give back to the local community, through a slew of fundraising and volunteering opportunities. There, our staff use their expertise to conduct cookery classes, help with maintenance, or assist in big charity events. 


If any of the charities we partner with resonate with you, we encourage you to join us and support them too.




GOSH is one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals, caring for hundreds of children every day. The charity raises funds to help give hope to seriously ill children and their families. 


The Langham family supports GOSH through fundraising events, including bucket collections at stations. We also participate and volunteer at the annual Race for Kids 5-km family fun run.


KIDS enables children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities to enjoy their lives and achieve their ambitions. At the same time, the charity provides support and guidance to families. 


The Langham family supports this charity through volunteering projects. We have held cooking or art classes to teach skills, and helped to clean and maintain playgrounds and accommodation.


Plan Zheroes uses an online food donation platform that connects businesses to those in need. Not only does this reduce food waste, but charities and community groups also get quick and easy access to food donations. 


The Langham family uses this platform daily to inform local charities about surplus pastries and bread products.


Room to Reward is a volunteer-recognition charity. It partners with hotels around the UK to say "thank you" to inspirational ‘Hidden Heroes’. Hotels donate unsold rooms, which are used to give nominated volunteers a well-deserved break.


Every year, The Langham family donates a minimum of 2 nights to the initiative.
