Using a somewhereto_ space to run an activity or put on an event?
You can download our toolkit here, to create flyers and promotional items to advertise it.
somewhereto_ is here to help young people find the spaces and places you need to do the things you love within sport, culture and the arts.
We can help you find literally any space, to use for whatever you love doing. A field to play football, a studio to practise music, online space to design, a billboard to illustrate, we're talking any space.Or perhaps you've dreamed of how you could use a special space near you - an office block or country house - where you could do something really big. We're here to help you explore all the possibilities.
Our goal is to open up spaces in every corner of the UK, and we're adding new spaces all the time. So whether you live in John O'Groats or Land's End, there could be a space available for you already. And if there isn't, then get in touch and we'll help you find one.
As well as the feel-good factor of helping young people do what they love, there are plenty of tangible benefits to giving space. You could avoid paying empty rates, raise the profile of your property in the market, and generate positive PR for your business.Opening up to becoming a somewhereto_ space could also help produce culture and enterprise in your community, with numerous examples of how this can springboard local regeneration.
Maybe lots of things interest you or you're not sure what you love doing yet. Then get in touch. The somewhereto_ team are on hand to talk to you about your ideas, and might even have a few suggestions.
