Sheffield’s Creative Arts Development Space has recently attained official charity status. Founded in 2009, CADS has grown from a collection of three small studios to a huge organisation offering 69 studios in four separate locations.
The organisation has been working as a self-sufficient social enterprise during this time, so it’s great to see that their hard work has paid off. CADS manager Steve Rimmer said that they are ‘delighted that CADS has received official charity status. It is a testament to the hard work we have put in and will enable us to continue providing space and support for the new creative of Sheffield.’
CADS has now grown into one of the biggest studio providers in Sheffield, and remain dedicated to supporting new ideas and projects in the creative and digital sector. Ranging from art, video, music or pretty much anything else you can put together with your own imagination, CADS are committed to providing affordable space and flexible terms. They even have a programme called spaceCADets, providing users with six weeks of free studio space to help people develop ideas.
The future is looking pretty darn rosy for CADS, their latest mission which they’ve absolutely accepted, is to provide a one-stop shop for people looking to rent creative space in Sheffield.

It’s also worth keeping an eye out for the new website CADS have got on the way, promising to provide a way of allowing people to upload space they have available, whilst letting potential tenants search all available properties.
