We’ve moved! Find us at Toynbee Hall

By Dama Sathianathan


We’re excited to announce that we’ve moved office. You can now find us at 28 Commercial Street, E1 6LS London in one of the historic buildings of Toynbee Hall. It’s an amazing space with an incredible heritage as the home of a whole host of organisations and individuals that have worked with the community in the East End since 1884, paving the way for some of the most significant social changes of the last century.

The reason for the move was that our old office is about to be bulldozed! Huge thanks to Ben and the team (+Luna 🐶) at Ministry of Startups for having us for the past two years. We had a brilliant time and thoroughly recommend them to any startups on the hunt for desks.

Getting in touch

At our last Team Away-Day in September, we spent some time thinking about how we work together and with others. Taking inspiration from Cassie Robinson’s User Manual, we each filled out our own, now using them for onboarding new staff as well and made a BGV User Manual (note this is work in progress) that we’d like to share with everyone.

The BGV User Manual covers our hours of operations and availability, where and when you can meet our team, who we like to work with and more. Do check it out, and get in touch or leave a comment if you have any feedback for us.
