We are on a mission to support local businesses in Norwich and have converted an empty space in the centre especially for this purpose.
We have transformed an area of the shopping centre into a dedicated Sharing Office. The new office space, on Level 2, is available for shops, businesses & community groups to use totally FREE of charge.
The centrally located office can be used to hold meetings or as some quiet space to catch up on emails.
Anyone wishing to use the office space should pop into the Management Office on Level 3, contact them on 01603 766430 or via firstname.lastname@example.org
Some of the businesses using our Sharing Office are:
Get Me Out The Four Walls is a local charity (no. 1177508) supporting mothers and their families who may be struggling with mental health issues, helping them escape the lonely four walls for some friendly interaction. They host social meets in local parks, coffee shops, attractions, on walks etc.
The Sharing Office offers Get Me Out The Four Walls a quiet, comfortable space to work and meet colleagues. After using the Sharing Office for just two weeks, they have booked it every week as it provides a space to meet and work together occasionally to enhance their creativity and effectiveness.
Japan Network Norwich
Japan Network Norwich is a non-profit making community group. It is the hub for anyone who likes Japan, Japanese culture and its people and for the rapidly expanding Japanese community around Norwich. They plan to network, provide information, hold events and support Japan-related organisations and businesses.
The Sharing Office provides them with a hub in the heart of Norwich, enabling face to face communication which they say is much better than emailing and writing letters. In the short time it has been open, it is already proving popular with users.
