Common House needs your support

The Common House creates a space where radical social justice groups can work and hold events, and we exemplify egalitarian social relations by being horizontally organised. We can only exist because of the generous support we get from our members and users. Please use the Donor Box below to help us keep our doors open – even a pound or two helps. If you choose to donate monthly you become a Friend of the Common House, which means we’ll send you email updates and occasional goodies like prints and posters (if you want them). Every donation, big or small is so much appreciated and really makes a difference.

The Common House is entirely run by volunteers who are delegated from our member groups. We’re non-profit, horizontally organised, and a registered Community Interest Company. We are funded partly through usage fees paid by the groups who use the space, partly by grants that our volunteers apply for, and partly through donations through the Donor Box. As well as needing donations, we also need more volunteers writing funding applications, so if you’re decent at writing then please consider it – no prior experience is needed and we’ll support you through the whole process. Email us at if you might be able to help out.

We also have an ongoing wish list for everyday items – below are some examples. If you have any of these, please bring them in next time you’re coming to the Common House and leave them in a suitable place so people can use them. (Or for bigger things, email
