Whatever You Do, Flourish Provides You With The Space To Do It!

Connecting People & Place

Flourish delivers space and support to people who make things happen. We make it easy to bring your ideas to life:
businesses, event-makers, charities, community groups or anyone else.

And when we say easy, we mean easy –
there are no long lease documents, no lawyers needed, no upfront deposits to drain your cash.

Just ideas, energy and action

If you have an activity or a dream that has people at its heart, we will help you deliver it, grow it and nourish it.
We want to give you a home – for a day, for a month, or forever.

We deliver the space and allow people, places and communities to Flourish.

Turning on the lights

If you are a landlord with void space that you would like to see put to good use, look no further than Flourish.

We activate void space and ensure that it delivers you a return, whether through licence fees, savings in landlord costs
or, simply, increasing the life in the property and making it a more attractive place to be,
both for tenants and for the community it serves.

We said we would make it easy & it is:

  • You tell us your requirements
  • We will find you suitable space
  • You can choose the duration of your occupation, from a few hours upwards...
  • You will sign a simple licence document
  • We will be alongside you to provide support for as long as you are with Flourish to make sure that you flourish
