Key objectives & Outcomes

Grant purpose

Through the Bright Ideas business development programme, Kitty’s Launderette is developing their idea for an inclusive arts space, launderette and community hub into a sustainable, co-operative business model.

Broad community impact

Kitty’s aims to accommodate a diverse range of individuals in its community who need access to affordable laundry services, including the elderly, families on low income and migrants.

Accessible arts

The launderette aims to provide an everyday space in which arts can be accessed and participated in by people who would not otherwise get the chance due to financial and social barriers.
