Our work in the community

Our work in the Community

Queen Mary is a proud part of our local community, with a commitment to the area around us being in the roots of our institution. 

Queen Mary began life in 1887 as the People’s Palace, a philanthropic organisation opened, according to Queen Victoria, “for the benefit of the people of east London”. We are proud of our heritage and remain committed to our roots in both the local area and local community.

On these pages you will find examples of just some of the work we do. For more information please visit our public engagement webpages or contact the relevant department below.
