We manage over 60,000 square foot of workspace on Ashwin and Abbot Street in Dalston, Hackney. We let a mixture of studios and desk spaces at the current market rate to a mix of tenants from social enterprises and film studios to freelance creatives and charities.
The rent was reset in summer 2016 to market rates in the wider context of London’s affordable property crisis. As a registered charity, Bootstrap takes the surplus generated from charging market rates to create the Bootstrap Fund.
The Bootstrap Fund is a pot of money that tenants can apply for to reduce their rent. It is awarded dependent upon which tenants have the biggest social impact in line with Bootstrap’s mission.
For more information on the Bootstrap Fund head to this page.
The next round of the Bootstrap Fund will take place in Spring 2017 and applications for tenants will open later this year.
