Good news - we're open for limited services in Wembley. Ujima House is now actively under refurbishment and we'd love your help in making the space the best it can be.

Please pay attention to the main LHS mailing list or pop into our #london-hack-space IRC channel and say hello.

During this interim period donations and continued membership are greatly appreciated while we transition to our new space.

I'm ciborg, a profoundly deaf member of the London Hackspace. I've been a LHS member for 4 years and a trustee for 1 year so far. I’m passionate about technology, community and inclusiveness.

In my spare time I was a co-opted video communications consultant for a deaf charity for over a decade, and advised on leveraging the most out of technology, especially text and video relay communications.

I was also a technical volunteer / Games Maker working closely with Omega in the timing & scoring team during the London 2012 Paralympics. This truly opened my eyes to how a wider cross-section of society can participate - if there is sufficient access.
