Social Enterprise Park at Arthur Street

In the late 1990’s Giroscope bought and renovated a dilapidated old stables and yard in the heart of west Hull to create the Arthur Street Social Enterprise Park.

The building incorporates both solar thermal and solar electric technologies and provides space to over half a dozen small enterprises and community businesses. It is also Giroscope’s HQ and office.

The ground floor is occupied by three ‘healthy eating’ businesses: an artisan bakery, an organic fruit and vegetable delivery service and a condiment manufacturer.

The upper floor houses a classroom where English is taught to new arrivals to the UK. It also provides office space for several other social enterprises.

Links to our business tenants can be found here.

We are currently developing the building as an educational resource. We have constructed a viewing area where the solar panels can be seen close up. We hope to attract both young school children and college students to our Enterprise Park to learn about renewable energy systems as part of the Rising Sun Project.

Giroscope also owns a vegetarian café and a shop, which along with the enterprise park help to create and sustain jobs in our community.

Giroscope's Housing Pledge

  • So long as the conditions of the tenancy are met, you have the right to remain in your home for as long as you wish.
  • Giroscope will not sell your house, or transfer ownership to another landlord so long as you are a tenant of that house.
  • Giroscope will not borrow money against its property in a way that endangers the financial stability of the organisation and puts your home at risk.
