We create uniquely designed public destinations where communities, local entrepreneurs and independent, local businesses come together to work, learn, grow and collaborate. We make these spaces as affordable as possible, and we actively connect our Members (tenants) with each other and the community around them. So far, we have successfully turned five underused spaces into new destinations for local communities that now house independent and social businesses based in Catford, Reading, Peckham and Hackney Wick.
Hackney Bridge is our most ambitious project to date, situated in Hackney Wick on a site that once housed part of the Clarnico Sweet Factory. We worked with local people from the start to ensure what we were offering met their wants and needs.
We’re a bridge in all senses of the word. We connect our industrial heritage with a future of progress. We bridge the gap between four London Boroughs: Tower Hamlets, Newham, Hackney and Waltham Forest; but most importantly, we provide a space for our local neighbours and enterprises to unite, collaborate and progress.
As well as providing the space local enterprises need to thrive, we work with our Members to make a positive difference in the community. We invest our time and skills into charitable projects and we provide free space for community events.
