About Us

From our inspiring business communities in which we help start-ups and enterprises to thrive, we're all about positive impact

Positive impact for people, place and planet.

What we do

Allia Future Business Centres offer flexible workspace and a vibrant community for small businesses who are creating change. Allia Impact runs free business support programmes and innovative funded projects. Together, they are dedicated to supporting businesses to thrive, grow and create jobs, so that they can make a positive impact on their community, as well as addressing social and environmental local & global challenges. 



Our centres in Cambridge and Peterborough offer flexible workspace, meeting rooms and networking, all within environmentally focused buildings – creating friendly communities in which your business can thrive.

Support programmes

Our team of expert business advisors and mentors work in Cambridge, Peterborough and East London, helping local start-ups & ventures to develop their businesses, build resilience, meet investors, build networks and grow.

Impact projects

We work on a range of funded projects, from supporting Agetech innovators help elderly people stay in their homes for longer, to the creation of modular homes providing affordable housing.

“Allia is at the cutting edge of what is being achieved in the social sector and has an immensely able team of inventive and hard-working people. I am hugely proud of what Allia and its team have achieved”

Charles Rosenmeyer,
Allia trustee


Our parent organisation Allia Ltd is a charity that has been at the forefront of impact innovation since 1999. In this time, we have been supporting those that aim to make positive change and address the most pressing global and local challenges across the UK. We’ve helped hundreds of ventures, charities, community initiatives and social enterprises create more positive impact.

The Allia way

Our expertise in running business centres to fund the provision of free support programmes means we can bring our model to other cities, to help boost social & economic growth in your community.


Over the years, we’ve been awarded funding from the European Regional Development Fund that has enabled us to support hundreds of local businesses across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough through a range of free advice, mentoring and support programmes.

We’re a friendly bunch who work hard, have fun, and enjoy working for an ethical not-for-profit focused on positive impact. With centres in Cambridge and Peterborough, and a busy team of business advisors in East London, the occasional vacancy does come up – so check out opportunities here.
