The hackspace has a number of small, self-governing teams that maintain particular areas. All teams have a channel in the team slack where they work. If you are interested in joining a team, come and join us in slack ( Please note, however, that slack is not a way for you to ask for things to be done - it's purely for teams to organise between themselves.

Each team is ultimately responsible to the Trustees.

There are a range of Team Tools and Resources available for teams to work productively.

So far, our current teams are:
