Creating an inspirational neighbourhood

We are a social enterprise working in Waterloo and North Southwark, London. From a derelict site in 1984 we have created a thriving, diverse, vibrant and welcoming place for people to live, work and play.

What we do

We provide the opportunities and spaces for people to lead their own change.

Our activities are wide and far reaching. From giving families and children the best start in life through our childcare and family support, to creating and maintaining high quality live, work and play spaces on land which we own.

We promote enterprise, creativity and lifelong learning. Whether that’s through providing employment, volunteering opportunities, nurturing enterprise or delivering programmes and activities. We provide housing that supports our community, champion co-operative housing and influence local and national housing policy.

From sports and dance to healthy eating and gardening. We offer a range of facilities and activities accessible to everyone to support health and wellbeing in our community.

We are conscious that our neighbourhood is a small part of a global community and that we all need to work together to tackle the challenges faced by the earth and all who live on it. We are currently working towards revamping a vital green space at the heart of our community, Bernie Spain Gardens North.
