Exciting news for the future of DIY Space for London! We now have £15,000.00 and rising in cleared donations, including our grant from Edge Fund, regular monthly donations from Friends of DSFL and other benefit initiatives. As such, our attention has now shifted from fundraising to space finding. We have seen some impressive properties, but none so far has been The One. So, we are continuing with our search and would like to appeal for your help. There are lots of ways to get involved with helping us to find a home for DSFL, and at the moment we’re very interested in knowing of any properties or spaces that might suit us. The brief is open in terms of location as we’re keen to know what is out there at this stage.
