3Space is an innovative charity which unlocks the potential of empty commercial property by making it available for temporary community use.
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.
