Imagine becoming part of an enterprising community developing ideas and business in Barking and Dagenham, based in a new warehouse space built exclusively for residents with free access.
Are you working from home and need space to grow? Are you sitting at work right now and you're finally ready to make that career change? You may have a hobby or side project that could become a full time job? Or maybe there's an idea you've always wanted to test out?
The Every One Every Day initiative has secured £850,000 from the London Mayor's Good Growth Fund.
Together with grants from our other funders we are building a large 'makerspace' in Dagenham East which will have open access to Barking and Dagenham residents.
What is a makerspace?
It's a new type of workspace with lots of equipment. The warehouse will operate much like a public library, giving residents of the borough the ability to work informally together, design and make new products, or make items that improve local neighbourhoods.
What do we mean by Open Access?
There will be no costs for using the space. The Warehouse is an opportunity for sharing skills and ideas. Residents that love using the warehouse will be part of maintaining the spaces and develop skills within the community.
