SET Centre CIO provides a new charitable alternative to vacant property security or property guardianship. With four years’ experience, SET has helped numerous property owners with professional vacant property solutions and had centres in Westminster, Tower Hamlets, Southwark, Wimbledon &  Hackney. We have made use of an old station, a disused pub, a church, a laundrette, numerous office buildings and light industrial units all prior to development, demolition or sale.

Becoming a provider of property security has meant we can carry on achieving our charitable objectives. We have met the problem of the lack affordable workspace with the blight of vacant property in London, creating a short term solution to both issues.

At each SET Centre (guarded vacant property) SET provides affordable artist workspace to its vetted Associate Members. In return, our members volunteer to contribute towards our arts and educational programme, hosting public workshops, talks or participating in exhibits or performances in our two central project spaces: SET Alscot Road in Southwark & SET Dalston Lane in Hackney.

SET is entirely non-profit and all membership fees are reinvested in achieving a greater positive impact.
