Initial works started at Meanwhile @ No 6 Somerleyton Road with Build It!


The incredible team of mentors and young people from Build It , an initiative by London Youth, started the work at No 6 Somerleyton Road on the 21st October 2013.  Within just a couple of days they’ve started to transform the space.

Build It is a new programme led by London Youth, from an idea co-created by London Youth and Cospa. The Big Lottery Fund has awarded London Youth £1.7m to run Build-it for the next two years.

Launching in April 2013, over the next two years Build-it will give 1,500 young people from Lambeth the chance to learn key trade skills by helping renovate up to 40 empty properties across the borough.
