URBED worked with Squash to design and develop new food hub on derelict land on Windsor Street in Liverpool 8. Squash are a Toxteth-based social enterprise, working within communities to share skills and promote food health and well-being, who believe that everyone should have equality of access to the enjoyment of good food in all of its aspects and culture. Their work embraces community participation and ownership.

We're working with Carbon Coop in this BEIS funded project to develop local supply chains to support whole house retrofit across Greater Manchester. This is one of six projects funded by in England and aims to both develop localised capacity to deliver retrofit works and inform future government policy and approaches.

Since 2013, URBED have been working with the Proud Trust to develop a new LGBT+ Centre in Manchester City Centre.

The Proud Trust (formerly LGBT+ Youth North West) is a life-saving and life-enhancing organisation that helps LGBT+ young people to empower themselves and make a positive change for themselves and their communities. This is done through youth groups, peer support, managing the LGBT+ Centre for Manchester, delivering training and events, campaigns, undertaking research, and creating resources.
