We are crowdfunding to raise money for a Community Organiser.

On our own we are vulnerable but by building our membership, together we can see through our crucial Commercial Rent Manifesto for a sustainable recovery.  

We don’t lack the ideas to make rent fair for small businesses or to support a sustainable recovery, we just need more people power. That’s why we’re crowdfunding to raise money for a Community Organiser. From experience, we know that organising small businesses to work together with a skilled member of staff is the only way to build the collective power we need to compel change.  

On May 6th, the new Mayor of London will be elected. Before that happens we want to put our Commercial Rent proposals in front of the main party candidates for commitments for action, so that way whoever wins, our proposals win with them. Help us get the candidates attention by building our membership power, join or support the Guild today!

If you are a small business, social enterprise or a self-employed person you can join through this crowdfunder. 

Save a third by joining as part of this affiliate group of 5 or more members for £120 per year - that's just £10 a month.


We know we can be successful because we’re scaling work we've already achieved with two local Mayors who publicly support our Affordable Workspace Manifesto.

In 2018 and 2019 we brought our members together in a public forum to ask the Mayor of Hackney and the Mayor of Tower Hamlets to support our affordable workspace initiatives.

Through this action we won:

- Reduction from 80% of market rent to 40% in Hackney’s local plan for Shoreditch and 60% in the rest of the borough

- Funding to research our London Working Rent proposal from the LEAP at the GLA, LBTH and a fully-funded PhD Studentship with QMUL

- A commitment to rental transparency with both Hackney and Tower Hamlets funding RENTCHECK, our revolutionary web-based app helping members find fair comparable rental evidence in rent negotiations. With your help RENTCHECK will be launched in June this year and will be essential to anchor rents at the low end of the market.

Joining now helps us scale this work from the local elections to the London Mayoral election and, importantly, enables us to recruit the vital extra staff member we need to make our proposals a reality.
