Respacing empty buildings so that everyone benefits.


The ReSpace Alliance is supporting the nationwide transition to a healthier, more fair and sustainable society, combatting wastefulness and inequality – promoting creativity and social cohesion. 


The Alliance is a co-created ‘safety net’ for communities: An organised and efficient network of public and community-owned spaces, to share resources, skills and knowledge – support communities and the third sector.

The Alliance supports communities and social sectors.


Community venues in otherwise empty buildings can host whatever local people need. Somewhere to start a business, learn a trade, self-organise, or just have a cup of tea and charge your phone. These spaces can also house homeless people and grow food if we put our minds to it. The Alliance is designed to support the wider network of community projects, meanwhile spaces and social enterprises, by providing access to resources and knowledge. 

The ReSpace Alliance has three core principles:

Surplus space and resources will be prioritised for use by communities, third sector groups and those most in need.


Support mutual aid hubs, community projects and the third sector to collaborate and share resources across their networks.
