Founded in Dalston, London, in 1978, Bootstrap started as an affordable workspace for social-change organisations. It has since grown to offer a range of enterprise, training, community and events programmes.
Affordable workspace remains at Bootstrap’s core, most notably through the Bootstrap Fund, which offers subsidised rent to social-change organisations. However, the organisation's premises - including a beautiful rooftop garden - now hosts an Enterprise programme for young social entrepreneurs, a diverse range of community and cultural events and training programmes and workshops for various audiences. Bootstrap is, in short, one of London’s best-loved hubs for social-impact activity.
