Space and the Broomhouse Hub

Our vision at Space, and the new Broomhouse Hub, is

‘to nurture, support and inspire, so that lives are fuller, potential is fulfilled and community connections flourish.’

The charity that manages and runs the Broomhouse Hub (the former Broomhouse Centre) will be known as ‘Space’,

and this has been inspired by our conversations with all of you.
