A small, but important, update to our organisation

You may have noticed a few small changes creeping in to our social media and other communications recently, that is because we have now officially changed our name!

Prior to our building refurbishment in 2019, you might remember we were known as The Broomhouse Centre. As we adopted the Space branding, we understand there was some confusion about exactly what our ‘proper’ name is. In order to deliver our services and fundraise correctly, it’s important that we communicate clearly the precise trading name we operate under. As our official name change comes into effect today, we want to share that we are now:

Space @ The Broomhouse Hub

This change highlights the work that we carry out directly within Broomhouse, while recognising that Space has grown in the support it provides to the wider Edinburgh area. For example, last year we expanded our successful dementia support service, The Beacon Club, to the Gilmerton New Church following increased demand. Through the likes of our befriending projects and Community Link Work services we are out in the community already, providing responses to challenges faced by those who might not be able to meet us face-to-face in The Broomhouse Hub.

As a charity, we are increasingly better equipped to deal with the challenges that our communities face. As Space continues to grow, we want to ensure that our name reflects the work that we do.

We have made no changes to our logo and our website, social media, and contact information remains the same – so no need to worry about remembering to visit a different page to find us!
