Community Spaces solves each client’s issues by providing a comprehensive approach backed by our team of experienced professionals. Our process fosters collaboration and innovation to ensure we not only understand the core needs of clients, but also help them develop successfully. Read our success stories below.
Action for Children
Clients often approach us with a general idea of what they need, and this project was no different. Action For Children recently opened their first retail store. We worked with The Hark Group who own Castle Mall Shopping Centre in Norwich to source the charity a short term pop up to sell clothes donated by a number of famous clothes brands . The pop up was a huge success raising well over £10,000 in just over 17 days.
Often times our clients have everything they need to succeed, they just require the resources and support to make the most appropriate decisions. Community Spaces work closely with the team at Age U.K. They currently occupy two units in Shrewsbury offering services to the local elderly people in one as well as retail outlet to sell furniture in the other. What started as a pop up has turned into a 4 year stay!
Yellow Ribbon work with ex-offenders and prison leavers to give them training and housing opportunities when they leave prison. Community Spaces work with them to source coffee shops and furniture outlets for their prison leavers to learn skills in retail, furniture making and hospitality.
Newlands Furniture Project - Bradford
Community Spaces have recently found a brand new home for Brenda and the team at Newlands Furniture Project. They can now sell their donated furniture and clothing in a high footfall retail park in the heart of Bradford. Since taking on the new store their income has increased substantially and they have been able to support more and more local people.
Signal: The Hub
In partnership with Community Spaces the team at Signal have found a town centre location for their key services to the hearing impaired in the local area. Now their clients do not need to attend the hospital but can meet Signals friendly team in the town centre and enjoy a relaxing coffee in the Hub Cafe whilst they wait for their appointment.
Meat Shack are Shrewsbury's premier meat and vegetable retailer. The team at Community Spaces worked with the new start up to source a high footfall shop in the heart of the city centre as well as organising a rent free and business rates free period to kick start the business. Meat Shack is now thriving and they are looking for larger premises.
