The re-building of the national stadium transformed the local area. More than £70m was invested in road, rail and pedestrian routes, to ensure the infrastructure copes with the influx of fans on event days – and benefits local residents and businesses all year round.
Our educational facility is an innovative and inspirational environment for young people. Based inside the stadium, it offers a range of fun one-day activities, six-week courses and bespoke programmes, as well as a unique venue for workshops, conferences and celebrations.

We’re at the heart of the local community and work closely with community engagement platform Slenky – a long-standing partner of the venue – to support and promote community groups in the London Borough of Brent.
Brent has been the home of Wembley Stadium since the iconic venue was built in 1923. One of the most diverse boroughs in England, it also became one of the worst-affected areas during the COVID-19 pandemic. That’s why we’re looking to do more to help.
Working with Slenky, Wembley has committed to promote and support six local community projects:
Based in Kilburn, Ultra Education deliver a variety of entrepreneurial education courses/ workshops in schools and clubs for young people between the ages of 7 and 18 years old.
2. Youngs FC
A family-run business based in Wembley, providing top-quality football coaching for young people of all abilities.
3. Let’s Talk Show – Chalkhill Community Radio Station
A Wembley-based radio station which aims to promote cohesion by engaging all members of the community. The station covers topics such as culture, music, and local news and issues.
4. Hearts of Talent
Hearts of Talent is a project that targets young people between the ages of 8 and 30 who are at a critical juncture in their lives. The aim is to help them find solutions and make positive choices about their future.
5. AQ Arts
A community organisation that works with a variety of local partners in Brent to promote culture and wellbeing through a range of events.
6. Jason Roberts Foundation
Established in 2007 by the former professional footballer, to put something back into the community he came from and to underpin his belief in equal opportunities, rights and representation for individuals – regardless of background or circumstance.
We offer work experience, apprenticeship and internship opportunities at Wembley. Just keep an eye on Slenky’s website for all the latest news and opportunities.
