Shoreditch Trust's Workspaces

Affordable Workspaces - iNDUSTRY
Shoreditch Trust delivers affordable workspace to micro, small and medium-sized creative and tech businesses. We have been supporting companies to grow as part of our community asset portfolio since 2004.

Our iNDUSTRY sites offer desk spaces, studios and meeting spaces. Businesses can develop through the flexible use of space for meeting, networking, socialising, and cooking and eating together.

We draw from previous experience, so that each new workspace we launch complements the rest of our portfolio, providing more opportunities to suit our existing and potential tenants.

All income generated through Shoreditch Trust’s Workspace and Enterprise Programme is re-invested in our charitable initiatives.

If you are an entrepreneur, start-up or freelancer who needs to maintain effective business connections whilst growing your business from a City-Fringe location, iNDUSTRY is the right fit for your needs. Our workspaces gives you space to create, innovate, network and expand.

Premises available: For available premises and more information on desks and studios to rent, please see our iNDUSTRY East Road and Whiston Road pages, or contact: ¦ +44 (0) 20 7033 8546 ¦ +44 (0) 7854 424 553.

Shoreditch Trust contributed our knowledge to shape priorities for London around workspace, with our CEO, Jacqui Roberts, sitting on the Advisory Group for IPPR's research into affordable workspaces in London, and tenants and license holders in our workspaces contributing to the survey and the piece of research. The full report was released in December 2016 and you can download it here.
