Providing sustainable serviced workspace to over 700 social change organisations...

Since purchasing our first centre in 1998, we have been providing managed desk space, office space and meeting space to charities, voluntary groups and social change organisations. 

Our centres offer tenants modern, affordable and flexible office space managed in a transparent and supportive way with the focus upon the sharing of resources and the creation of a communal working environment.

We currently own 15 and manage seven centres in England and Scotland as well as having interests in a further three centres in Belgium and France, all of which are managed to minimise energy use, waste, car travel and the use of harmful materials.

Feasting on food waste!

Feasting on food waste!

On Thursday 22nd November, The Pig Idea, supported by Sustain, tenants at Development House, hosted ‘The Pig Idea Feast’. Some of the UK's best known chefs gathered in Trafalgar Square to offer members of the public their favourite pork dishes – free of charge.  There was a stage with ‘live’ cooking demos, a children’s area, and information about The Pig Idea and other campaigns for better food and farming.
 
The pork for the Feast came from eight pigs reared at Stepney City Farm on a healthy diet of food that would otherwise have been wasted, including spent brewer’s grains from a local microbrewery, whey from a Peckham dairy, and unsold vegetables from a catering supplier.  For the full story, please click here.
