Open Letter: Sistah Space Venue Relocation

We have grown increasingly concerned with the situation regarding Sistah Space and the proposed relocation to their previous address in Clapton.

Today with the Hackney Women’s Equality Party and Hackney Liberal Democrats we have sent a joint letter to Mayor Philip Glanville seeking assurances that arrangements are in place to ensure we avoid the loss of this essential service for African and Caribbean women suffering from domestic abuse across Hackney and London and asking the following:

  • What action is the Council taking to ensure Sistah Space can remain in their
    current location until at least after March 31st 2021, as they have requested?
  • Why is the Council evicting Sistah Space from their current location to a
    property that is unsuitable for their needs, unsafe and in the middle of a
  • What assurances can the Council make to ensure that Sistah Space can move
    to suitable premises once it is safe to do so?
