Punching

We have been working hard on funding bids for the redevelopment of our Bexhill site to make a much larger HFS store and a hub of affordable workspaces for local start-up enterprises. 

As a small social enterprise, HFS has done really well to get to the final stages of 3 funds that could together cover the costs of this ambitious project. Most of the other bidders are large organisations or local authorities with teams dedicated to the task (plus Legal, HR, Finance departments)!

We are particularly proud to reach the final round of the national Coastal Communities Fund. We’re told we are the only project in the County to get this far. We are also through to the final stages of the SELEP growth fund and CHART.

There is no guarantee of funding at this stage and the project can only go ahead if the bids are successful. We are waiting to hear from the funders, and hope to have news in the next few weeks.

Need work space?

to let boardsWe need you to tell us about your work space needs in a short online survey.

If you have been looking for space to start an enterprise, make a change from working at home, use as a creative studio, or even re-locate an existing small business, we want to get your views about the things that would make a work space attractive for you.

Your feedback will inform the plans for redeveloping our Bexhill site, extending the buildings to create units for people to rent for work, and help us apply for funding to make it happen one day.

There isn’t any space available at the moment, we need your views to help make a case for it.
