  • providing business development support, for example through fully-funded consultancy support to Co-operatives and Social Enterprises
  • providing free business start-up training courses
  • providing low-cost business services that meet the needs of small organisations and vastly reduce administration expenses
  • providing comfortable and affordable meeting rooms
  • providing networks

We currently have 73 units ranging  from 100-2300 sq ft. These include small offices, medium-sized workspaces, retail outlets and night-time economy venues, based in the heart of Dalston. 

HCD is an incubator to new and to growing organisations from all sectors, providing a range of business development support and our property management is integral to this service. With this in mind we ensure that our properties are available at reasonable rates and offer terms to suit organisations at these stages of development.

We enjoy good relations with our tenants who benefit from the ethos engrained in our social and economic values and who often benefit from opportunities to collaborate with HCD and other tenants. When selecting new tenants, we prioritise co-operatives, social enterprises, businesses looking to enhance Dalston’s cultural offer and local residents keen to start up in business and particularly welcome applications that demonstrate how organisations will work co-operatively with other tenants.
