Support Matthews Yard

Matthews Yard UK is non-profit company Limited by Guarantee. Established in November 2017, the companies aim is to preserve the legacy of Matthews Yard in and beyond Croydon by creating and operating urban spaces which create opportunities for the local community to come together and collaborate to produce great things.

Matthews Yard has always been reliant on the support of the local community and until now we have been lucky to have it. Without any salaries taken into account, it costs more than £20,000 per month to operate our two premises in central Croydon. Our low price points and flexible approach to working with entrepreneurs and the local community mean we are always playing catch-up and looking for a helping hand.

You don’t need to throw money at us to show us a little love. After all, a simple hello, goes a long way.
