The H&F Hive offers a new and creative way for community groups to make changes to community space, or organise new and exciting activities.

So, if you have a great idea for a community project, environmental improvement or event, get started by getting your project information together and uploading it on Spacehive.

Getting advice before you start

It’s easy to make a bid and there’s lots of help from our team.

If you have an idea and want to talk it through before you start creating a project page, contact the Spacehive support team on 020 3841 5989 or send them an email. They will be able to tell you if your project is eligible for the H&F Hive, and help you refine your idea.
