In conjunction to the community hub, the organization will be working in partnership with HD Consultancy to create an innovation hub alongside the proposed community hub. Our aim is to help budding entrepreneurs by providing them with a physical platform to create their own businesses, including complimentary business advice and support. We will also create a local business network to help startup companies find partners and associates, and provide affordable workspaces and conference facilities for members of the local communities. This project will be run in conjunction with Lancaster City Council as we transform the two shops, located around the corner from the community hub, into an artist studio and a digitalised workshop with hot desks and conference facilities, in order to help budding entrepreneurs and start-up business owners within the local area, create and grow their own businesses as part of our social mission.
Our mission is to help the local community, especially those with mental and physical health-related problems, and to contribute to the regeneration of the area and growth of the local economy by supporting budding entrepreneurs.
