Community & Charity

Robert Langmead believes that individuals and businesses have responsibilities to the wider community.

With a strong family history in West Sussex, Robert feels it is important to give something back to the local community. He continues to be a positive role model to encourage young people in sport, education and healthy living and is keen on promoting coronary health, dementia care and developing young people into the business leaders of the future.

Personally supported by Robert Langmead

Robert is committed to supporting a range of local organisations and local charities:

Restless Development is a charity that works closely with young people around the world enabling them to lead and solve current global challenges. Whether that means supporting communities to end child marriage or prevent HIV, the charity works with young people to change their lives and the lives of people in their communities.   Robert is particularly focused on supporting these three projects with the charity:

Dynamic in Uganda – stands for Driving Youth-led New Agribusiness and Micro-enterprise, and it facilitates the creation of sustainable economic opportunities for disadvantaged Ugandan youth between 15-24 year olds. It has a market-driven and holistic approach and aims to increase the number of young people who are in secure employment or self-employment.

Girls 2030 – sets up school-level career clubs, organises district-level career and skill camps and organises career internship programmes. The girls are of secondary school age and focuses on their future career-planning.

Anakazi Leaders in Zambia – promotes young women’s participation in leadership and business opportunities. With over 400 young women between 18-30 receiving training in business, leadership, financial literacy, mentorship, incubation workshops for business ideas and internships. The project also aims to change attitudes of employers towards women’s empowerment and career potential.
