Mission and Need

Simply put, we are here to support the talent of today for a better tomorrow.

Young and older entrepreneurs seeking to set up their own businesses often have the work ethic and drive to succeed but not the experience or courage. 

So many talented people are under represented, disadvantaged or simply lacking in business skills and experience, no matter their ability. Starting a successful business is challenging at the best of times, and the cost of living crisis has made it even harder.

We offer a helping hand, providing vital and inspirational support to our businesses. We encourage and foster peer-to-peer networking and knowledge sharing across sectors and our training and mentoring is carried out by real business people. 

Our make-it-happen culture and cross-sector support, make us truly unique.

In Partnership, In Trust and Always Affordable

Affordable Workspace Foundation (AWF) is directly financed by AWP and operates alongside the Affordable Workspace PartnershipTM.

We believe that combining Affordable WorkspacesTM with free business mentoring, training and peer-to-peer networking can help small businesses grow to their full potential.
