About

The first containers have now arrived on site, and over the next few weeks the containers will be clad and painted, walkways will be created, and a garden will be planted. Check back here or follow us on social media for regular updates.

Our mission is simple.

York is full of talented and visionary people. We are creating an affordable and inclusive space in the middle of town that will create opportunities for local people to realise their ambition. Whether it’s a local chef with a unique culinary idea, a budding retailer who can’t afford a space in town, or a volunteer who wants to take their charitable ideas to the next level; we aim to be the Spark that starts their journey.

Our approach is collaborative.

Spark:York has an active community outreach program where we meet with organisations who help people in the local community. Activities and support will be offered to all, including those with additional needs, low incomes, and those suffering exclusion, isolation and loneliness.

Our compassion is real.

Everyone at Spark:York has a social purpose at the heart of their business, with a commitment to giving something back to the local community.
