Are you a voluntary group who needs office space or somewhere to host activities?
Frustrated by the lack of facilities for the third sector in Camden?

Community Assets Enterprise - Providing Premises for Third Sector Organisations

We are delighted to announce that in response to the ongoing premises and activity space needs of the third sector in Camden, Circle 33 Housing Trust, One Housing Group, Origin, Voluntary Action Camden (VAC) has established a social enterprise called Community Assets Enterprise (CAE). Camden BME Alliance and Disability in Camden (DISC) have also recently come on board.

Our vision is to “provide high quality office and community activity space to third sector organisations, primarily in Camden. This space will be accessible, efficient and sustainable and be designed to promote interaction and synergy between organisations”.
Over coming months our aims are:

  • To identify appropriate and sustainable office and community accommodation and to take on the head lease with commercial or statutory landlords so enabling a reduced rent for third sector organisations to be negotiated. All savings will be used to undertake building management functions.
  • To provide a building management service to third sector organisations, (particularly small and emerging groups) that have difficulty in accessing and managing premises.
  • To provide shared backroom services e.g. office management, office equipment, mail and franking services, communications and IT infrastructure, reception and security functions to enable economies of scale to be achieved.
  • To develop a partnership model between housing associations, Voluntary Action Camden, the London Borough of Camden and the Third Sector that will be a model of good practice and have the potential to be rolled out nationally.

CAE is planning to lease a building in Camden from 2009, if you are interested in registering your organisations interest in renting space or would like more information please contact:
