Cadder Community Centre Office and Desk Spaces for Social Enterprises

Cadder Community Centre provides a modern, state of the art community facility serving Cadder and north west Glasgow.

The Centre provides a base for social gathering and the provision of services, activities and events open to all ages and backgrounds of residents living in Cadder and the wider north west area of the city. The facility provides a range of rooms available to hire and offer a discounted rate for community organisations and those looking for longer term lets or full day use of rooms.

The Centre is looking to provide a Social Enterprise Room offering affordable desk and office space plus storage which can be made available on a permanent, short term, full or shared space arrangement. This will target social enterprises (including CICs, charities, voluntary groups) rather than commercial organisations to offer community benefit.
