Free Space for Community Groups>Activism>Charities

A total of 5,000 sq ft (1 floor) of free space will be offered to a range of charities and community groups. We want to support grassroots movements, community initiatives and registered charities. 

We are looking to hear from organisations in need of space, whose work addresses structural inequalities and crucial societal issues including the climate emergency, racism, poverty, mental health, and/or from organisations that deal and engage with local issues. 

Spaces will run for 1 year guaranteed from March 1st & all utilities are covered.

Whether you're just starting up or well established, interested organisations should get in touch here:

In your email please list;

  1. What you do and why it’s important.
  2. Any online links / past documentation (if applicable)
  3. How much space you need (rough size in sq ft)
  4. What aspect of your organisation will you be using the space for? (Office space, meetings, workshops?) 
  5. Can the space be a section of a larger open plan room with other organsations? 
  6. Do you specifically need private space?
  7. Will any members of the public need access to the space? 

The deadline to apply is Monday 15th of February and we will endeavour to get back to everyone before the end of the month.  We are looking to support a combination of causes and sadly won't be able to accept everyone who applies. We will also choose organisations dependant on the kind of space we have available and what you need.
