Rural Urban Synthesis Society


Span Trust seeks to support projects that alleviate poverty in the community. The trust is happy to be assisting Lewisham based charity RUSS, to fit out the interior of their self-build training Hub and community building project that will see 33 local low-income families build their own homes.

The homes are sustainable, low-cost, and as part of the scheme the 50 sq m training Hub will also double as a local community space.

Span Trust’s support will complete the interior of the training Hub, decorate the building, and equip it for up to 30 people so they can be taught basic construction skills. Lifelong, transferable skills are an asset in themselves and this project provides more than just a physical structure.
