The group has renamed Tate Modern’s Natalie Bell Building the Natalie Bell building for a year in honour of this local community activist’s positive contribution to the lives of others in SE1.

About Natalie Bell

Natalie Bell is a community activitist who is passionate about community leadership. She has over 20 years of experience working as a volunteer, founder of SE1 United Youth Forum, Threads Fashion programme at Pembury Estate, trustee of several boards in the SE1 area and other parts of London including Hackney and Thamesmead.

In her own words: "I believe in authentic grass roots 'bottom up' community work where individuals move through a ladder of participation and shape their own projects for themselves. I believe in true sustainability and 'win/ win' situations where holistic partnerships and shared agendas between all parts of a neighbourhood can ensure sustainability, especially the days of hand outs have gone. I believe people are human beings and not KPIs and statististics. I believe in focussing on people's strengths and not their weaknesses, not the decifit model."
