FABRIC is the brainchild of Cathertine Howe, the new CEO of Adur and Worthing Councils. She said, “the initiative is an integral part of providing much needed workspace for residents, creating a place to work, collaborate and support one another”. The aim at FABRIC  is to facilitate meaningful conversations.  They want to understand what is important to local businesses and residents.

More about Freedom Works

Freedom Works is a product of the district that is reutilising underused buildings to create great coworking spaces. The people that work from them are proud to do so as they’re local to where they live, with the added benefit of positive collaborations. 

Freedom Works managed to complete the conversion work in under 60 days. Now, the building offers ,a welcoming and inclusive community with  coworking space at the ‘heart.’

Why join the Freedom Works family?

As with all of Freedom Works spaces, members benefit from super-fast WIFI (shared 1Gb connection), free refreshments, kitchen access and of course, their legendary ‘Free Beer Fridays’ – where members can unwind at the end of the week and learn a little more about each other.  

Community is at the heart of Freedom Works and they pride themselves on being ‘more than a roof over your head’. All members have access to the wider Freedom Works community in Worthing and can connect with members from The Mill Building and the Creative & Digital Hub, and vice versa.

As well as a fantastic space to work, members enjoy the additional benefits of our ‘Member Support & Accelerator Service’ which includes direct introductions to both our members as well as our partners in the wider community.

What’s the plan for FABRIC?

The long term, the plan is to work alongside local community groups to develop FABRIC in a commercially sustainable way.  Once it can be proven to the council that there is a genuine and tangible need for a collaborative workspace like this, the objective will be to focus on building a more purposeful development on the site in the form of a next generation building.
