Member Agreement and Safer Space Policy

This is the policy that all members of HEALTH CLUB and non-members using the space must agree to abide by. We think it’s really important to try hard to keep this space as much an oasis of positivity and acceptance as possible. We’re always open to changes to make the policy better / more inclusive. Let us know!

Space Use Agreement

Host your next event / meeting / movement group at HEALTH CLUB: We make our space available to the community for fundraisers, shows, speaking events, or your event whatever it may be. Our fee structure is flexible, and in general we are happy to work with you to make your event a success. E-mail a completed form to [email protected] or drop it off during open hours!
