Our brand new affordable maker space

February 13th saw the launch of THRIVE, a new affordable co-working space, where local residents from SE16 can work comfortably and develop their business idea. THRIVE (formally known as the Flaming Grill restaurant) was brought back into community use by British Land and has become a much-needed resource for local people.

Thrive - Who are we?

The Vision

At the heart of THRIVE is our determination to create a sense of community where local people can support each other on their different business journeys.  There will be  opportunities for networking and sharing skills and services.
