Swapping Commute for Communities
Community Coworking Ltd (CCL) is a social enterprise set up to enable new ways of working: swapping commute for community – supporting local economies, breathing life back into obsolete spaces on high streets in rural & urban settings.
We care deeply about thriving & powerful communities and want to help build a future that works for everyone.
Community Coworking Ltd evolved from a mix of hyperlocal co-working proposals and digital poverty initiatives with the goal of making sure ‘no one is left behind’ by the digitisation of our society. This is an important part of the vision, but we envisage these spaces having much, much wider impact.
Our work supports the drive towards equality in people and place.
CCL’s work will underpin the national ‘levelling-up’ agenda by supporting the development of thriving communities, where every resident & citizen regardless of age or background has equal opportunities in employment and education. In 10 years from now, we envisage a national infrastructure of inclusive community coworking spaces on the high street.
