Space & Broomhouse Hub is a Scottish award-nominated charity organisation working to improve the happiness, mood & mental wellbeing of our community members; enhancing physical health, developing skills & job opportunities, whilst growing the confidence of the residents of our area and beyond in South West Edinburgh. We do this by nurturing, supporting and inspiring people of all ages so that lives are fuller, potential is fulfilled and community connections flourish.

In 1991, at a time of depression and recession, community activism and a refusal to accept Broomhouse deserved anything less than other communities – local residents campaigned to turn a row of six shops into one centre. The Broomhouse Centre.

30 years on, and still with local community groups and trustees at the core, Space at the Broomhouse Hub has a new state-of-the-art community building housing a community training café. We have grown and now deliver 17 projects, with 50+ staff and 250+ volunteers. We deliver diverse services supporting young people, families, older people and carers amongst others, engaging with local people more than 34,000 times last year.

Whilst holding the integrity of Space at our core, we are a values-led organisation that is:

  • Welcoming - Nurturing relationships & kind experiences that enable people to smile, flourish & be resilient
  • Fun- Passionate, non-judgmental & friendly people, developing an inclusive community
  • Creative - Initiating and embracing challenges, innovation, opportunities and new ideas
  • Bold- Ambitious, aspirational and determined to have a lasting impact
  • Trustworthy- Open, honest, holistic, professional and transparent – continually improving our effectiveness
