During the pilot phase our aim is to test whether we can create a special space which will have three complimentary ‘pillars’ of work. These would benefit local people, the wider community as well as create a sustainable income.
Hosting a work space for sole-traders and a hub for networking
On Monday-Fridays the space provides a quiet, professional working space for up to 15 local self-employed individuals who need a hot-desk and communal area to work.
Membership to this work club is until December 2020. A meeting room and phone-zone is available as is high quality wi-fi, free coffee/tea.
The shared work space is open for members 9am - 5pm Mon-Friday
Supporting young people as they find their place in the future of work
As part of our commitment to support new businesses three work desks would be freely made available for local young people (18- 25 yrs) who are wanting to establish their business.
All members using the workspace are offered the opportunity to informally support these young people, and help incubate new ideas.
The space has become the ‘home’ of the Facework project which helps young people acquire the soft-skills needed for the changing world of work.
Helping the community by supporting local people to host events
On Friday, Saturday and Sundays evenings, the hall is available to hire for members to run events. In the main these events are private functions,training, a team away-day, or local festival events.
Arrangements for the sale of alcohol or food is under the strict oversight of the license we have for the premises.
Members have priority for booking the space and all those involved in running events will need to agree to the HH code of ethics.
