Turn a link with spaces into a URL for a folder copy

hello, first time posting. We have paid a power automate contractor in the past to create a flow that updates a list item on creation. When the staff member creates a new site from filling out the form, this flow creates and updates the list item. The staff member then copy and pastes a set of folders files into the newly created and updated site. I want to automate this copy and paste as a beginner to power auotmate (main role is salesforce). As a test I have added a step that can copy the files to a pre-existing site as the 'Destination Site Address' is a picklist option. What I want to do is pass the newly created site's url into the 'Destination Site Address'.


The existing flow steps create a site link with our sharepoint URL and then the ServerRelativeURL, added at the end. Though I cant use this in the 'Destination Site Address' as it has spaces.


How to I take our sharepoint URL and then the ServerRelativeURL he used to set link and pass it into the 'Destination Site Address'.


At the moment my input JSON looks like this


"parameters/destinationDataset": " 0000 SG",


When I believe it should be 

"parameters/destinationDataset": "",

so I encoded the event string then added it to the end of the destination folder string.
