Ensuring Fish Island’s regeneration works for local people and creative businesses
Hackney Wick, London
Key objectives & Outcomes
To upgrade their community hub facilities and café, purchase new equipment for the café, gallery and events space to maximise profits, which will help them scale up their social impact and deliver necessary community activities.
Stour Space was created by local residents in 2009 as a response to the lack of facilities and infrastructure on Fish Island in Hackney Wick, enabling local residents and businesses to thrive and connect.
Improved social inclusion
Stour Space aims to enable more local residents to be a part of regeneration and political decision-making processes, and provide affordable workspaces and employment opportunities.
