At the Wellcome Genome Campus we have a long-standing relationship with our local communities; in fact, many of the people that work here also live locally. We take pride in being a good neighbour, regularly meeting with local community groups, including the Parish Councils of Hinxton, Ickleton, and Great Chesterford, providing an excellent opportunity to exchange news and developments on Campus and in the surrounding area.
We welcome visits to the Campus by local groups, schools and organisations. You can chat with our scientists about their cutting-edge research and share our passion for genomics. Visits and tours can be arranged through the Visit the Campus page.
The local communities also share access to our Wetlands Nature Reserve. Many of our neighbours attend events organised on the wetlands and even volunteer to help with its maintenance.
We provide financial support and make donations to local non-commercial enterprises, including raffle prizes to schools, fetes and local events; donations towards playground equipment, school refurbishments and other community projects.
