We work in partnership with landlords and leaseholders to offer organisations that benefit the community temporary free of charge access to otherwise empty properties. These spaces are made available to other charities, registered community organisations and social enterprises for temporary, pop-up projects.
You’re probably wondering how we can do this? We’re funded by landlords, who benefit from having a charity use the space. The only ‘catch’ is that the properties remain on the market, which means that if a commercial tenant is found, we have to leave. This can be in as little as 7 days, but we’ve been using some properties for over a year!
We currently have spaces available in a range of locations across the UK – explore this site to find out more about how we work, and see how other organisations have used our spaces successfully.
3Space are proud to be included in the list of ‘Britain’s 50 New Radicals’ 2012, as chosen by NESTA and The Observer, and in November were included in the Smarta100 – a list of Britain’s most ‘exciting and disruptive small businesses’.
3Space are also delight to have been chosen as part of the GLA’s Outer London Fund Special Assistance Team. We look forward to working with London boroughs looking to explore innovative options for empty shop activation. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
