Setting up a Bencom

Rooms of our Own is setting up a BenCom  which will be called Rooms London. This will enable a whole community of women to collectively own the asset we eventually procure and build. We think this is a very exciting model, and harks back to the early days of the Women’s Movement when the emphasis was very much on co-operation and collectivity.

Setting up a charitable BenCom will enable us to issue community shares to fund the purchase of a site. Please take our quick three question survey to gauge interest in a Community Share Offer for Rooms of our Own

We are still hoping that our PETITION might persuade LBWF  to go back to their original agreement, but we are already scoping out other possibilities. Much as we want to build in Walthamstow, we need to be looking for another potential SITE either in Waltham Forest or somewhere in the North-East London area.

At this exciting time we are also looking for more women to join our Board
