Our mission

Create a space that sparks real community impact.

Our Story

Impact Brixton launched in 2014 as a community workspace for mission-led organisations. It has since become a home for community-led change, with projects such as the People’s Fridge and Open Project Night bringing together people and organisations of all background to make a better South London, together.

Our Values

Curiosity

Imagine rediscovering your child-like wonder and excitement for learning about the world, ideas and other people – asking questions that go beyond ‘Why?’ to ‘How?’, ‘When?’ and ‘What next?’.

Inclusivity

Imagine the strength and understanding we can build by welcoming diverse people and perspectives, so we don’t just see another point of view but feel it, too.

Generosity and optimism

Imagine the snowball effect from giving friendship, time, knowledge and biscuits to build a community of trust and opportunity.

Meet the Team
