Join Us

Are you a local independent business looking for your next step? A street food market trader wanting your first kitchen space? Or a fledgling business looking for a shared office space?
If you are local to Southwark, you share our ethos, and you want to make a positive social impact within the SE15 community, then we want to hear from you.

Stay local, Peckham

All of our Members apply to join Peckham Levels, and we give priority to enterprises run by local people from Peckham and the Borough of Southwark.

Local businesses are powerful engines for change and we give them a place to call home, among a community of like-minded entrepreneurs.

We know that every business is different and we have a range of spaces available that give local people the space they need to create thriving enterprises.

Supported spaces FOR LOCALS
(Currently no vacant spaces, apply now to join our waiting list)

Two Supported Spaces are currently available at a reduced rent, with successful applicants paying 35-50% of the full market value.

These spaces are available to give local Southwark-based entrepreneurs and enterprises the opportunity to see their business thrive at Peckham Levels.


The Application Process

We interview for new Members four times a year. You can apply at any point throughout the year and your application will be considered as part of the next interview round.

Fairness and transparency are really important to us, so we use an application scoring system at each step of the way. 

Step 1
Take a look at the spaces on offer and have a read of who we are looking for. If it sounds like a good match, then we’d love to hear from you.

Step 2

Complete and submit an application. As well as learning about your business, we’re also keen to find out more about your connection to the local area and the contribution you might make to the Peckham Levels community.

Step 3 
If your application is successful, we’ll invite you for an interview to learn more about your future plans. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask us questions and view the spaces available. 

Step 4
If offered a space, we’ll send you a Heads of Terms (HoTs) setting out, in principle, the agreed transaction. The HoTs need to be signed and returned by email in order to secure your space. 

Step 5
We’ll invite you to the Make Shift office to sign the Lease. Once your deposit is paid we’ll hand you over to the on-site team to collect your keys.
