Our Parklife is a brand new company on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Its purpose is to connect local people to the Park through employment and training and volunteering. It’s a Community Interest Company (CIC) that was set up as part of the Estates and Facilities Management (EFM) contract on the Park with the specific task of involving local people in the Park through the management of the parklands and the management and maintenance of the buildings and some of the venues. As a CIC Our Parklife is a not for profit company – any surpluses generated will be reinvested into the Company.
Our Parklife CIC has four founding members – ENGIE, idverde, Renaisi and Groundwork London. Together these organisations have created a range of opportunities for local people to become involved in the Park from volunteering on the Parklands and in the Mobility Service to working in the security and grounds maintenance teams.
