Rooms of Our Own
“Rooms of our Own is an exciting new social enterprise planning to build a beautiful, green and fully accessible centre on this site in St James Str, Walthamstow. There will be a café open to all, hotdesking, meeting rooms, a creche, gallery space, performance space, spaces for women’s charities and support for women’s businesses. We also plan to grow food on the roof!
We want to move away from the grant-funded models of the past, and to construct housing to fund the women’s centre. Once the project is built it should be financially self-sustaining and we hope that the model will be copied across London and even the UK. The main capital receipt will be generated once the project is completed.
Meanwhile we are still fundraising to help us raise a “small” initial deposit towards buying this site. All suggestions and donations gratefully received. Our Patron is Stella Creasy MP” RooO 2015
