New Work Club Supports Parents on Employment Journey

Welcome to Space @ The Broomhouse Hub

The last few years have been difficult for everyone. COVID-19 and the ongoing cost-of-living crisis have hit deprived communities especially hard.

At Space, we care.

For more than 30 years, we’ve worked to build a better future for the people of Broomhouse, Parkhead, and Sighthill—as well as the wider South West Edinburgh area. 

But we still have much to do. Find out more about Space’s work and impact supporting our community. And why we won’t give up on those who need us most.
