Bootstrap Friendship 2017

The Bootstrap Friendship is a scheme designed to involve people in all parts of what Bootstrap does, as well as helping us to achieve our charitable aims. Becoming a Bootstrap Friend means becoming part of the Bootstrap Community.

The Bootstrap Friendship costs £12, lasts for one year (£1/month!) and brings a whole host of exclusive benefits:

• Free entry to Dalston Roof Park day and night (excluding ticketed events)
• Discounts and early bird bookings to many ticketed events
• Exclusive Friendship events all year
• Updates on how your money is supporting the Bootstrap charity
• Discounted rates to hire our event spaces for film / photo shoots

Where does the Bootstrap Friendship money go?

Bootstrap Friendship sign-ups, and all money made at Dalston Roof Park, goes directly towards supporting Bootstrap’s mission. Bootstrap is a registered charity, and long-standing social enterprise, which has been working towards alleviating poverty in Dalston since 1977.

Part of Bootstrap’s mission is to provide training for local young people via our Enterprise Bootcamp programme. We work with local young people (18-24) and support them to start their own businesses through a 12 week programme. We connect them to industry professionals at Bootstrap, provide mentoring and desk space which allows them to get their ideas off the ground, develop their careers and gain vital real-life experience.

But don’t listen to us, take a look for yourselves.

Income from our event spaces such as Dalston Roof Park, and from the Bootstrap Friendship scheme, allows us to continue supporting young people in Hackney and achieve our mission.
