Wiser Workspace

Hot Desks, Studio Space & Training Room Hire

The goal is to develop a Skills Learning Institute with special attention paid to digital and business skills development with a social entrepreneur and community focus. Our vision is to develop a flexible place where people can feel like they belong and can access everything they need to develop themselves or their business regardless of their personal or financial circumstances.

What are we aiming to do?

  • Offer friendly, collaborative workspace and IT facilities which individuals can hire for affordable fees knowing they are helping to sustain community projects
  • Raise money for our non-profit projects
  • Provide volunteer opportunities in mentoring, customer service, IT and administration and specialist opportunities in web development, graphic design, marketing and photography.
  • Develop a digital learning centre where anyone can access skills training and personal development regardless of their circumstances
  • Provide venue hire, meeting rooms and conference facilities for tutors and entrepreneurs seeking to run workshops or get tutoring experience

A space to work, a space to earn, a space to teach, a space to learn.

How do we do this?

Utilise our Wiser Solutions premises to:

  • Offer room and/or desk space for hire to those wanting to avoid the commitment of a lease or formal licence.
  • Run coworking days for individuals usually working from home to work alongside each other, preventing isolation and promoting networking.
  • Provide virtual office services for digital business owners who want the security of using our address.
  • Run classes and workshops such as IT basics, photography and facepainting.
  • Offer ‘drop in’ sessions for individuals to use our computer and printing facilities

How are volunteers involved?
