WHAT ARE SOCIAL CENTRES?

Social Centres are self-managed spaces either owned, occupied or leased which take many different forms. Social Centres are a means whereby people can come together to create, conspire, communicate and offer a collective challenge against capitalism.

The idea of Social Centres is not only to occupy social space but to create a critical visible presence in the community where people can engage in radical ideas and events.

Social Centres offer a sense of community and solidarity, affordable food and entertainment, a non-commercial place to relax, talk, meet people or find information on political campaigns, issues and actions.

A list of current UK social centres can be found on the right handside column of this website (we’re trying to update this but if you notice something out of date, please let us know by posting a comment!)
