We are a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee.
Vacant property represents a cost to landlords and developers and can drain the vitality out of our neighbourhoods. We work to capture the costs and turn them into opportunities to create social and economic value.
We do this by becoming the tenants of vacant properties and enabling people to make valuable use of them in a way that supports their neighbourhoods. Our charitable status means that it can be more affordable for us to occupy a space than for it to sit empty.
Our board consists of professionals from the public, private, and voluntary sectors with expertise in property, workspace, regeneration, law and social enterprise.
