The MCN is a pilot project that is being funded by the Armed Forces Covenant Trust Fund. Its aim - to assess the viability of our hub model and the demand for coworking hubs in the UK and overseas. For the pilot, we identified several sites across multiple geographies, including Akrotiri, Bovington, Bulford, Blandford, Chivenor, Clyde, Leuchars, Sandhurst and Valley.
The pilot will end in September 2022, and there will be an ongoing evaluation of our hubs using an independent agency. The results of this will be presented to the MOD to support discussions on the future of the MCN. If successful, we are hoping to secure longer-term funding, which will allow us to open further hubs at other military bases. But for the time being, it does mean that we are not able to open more hubs for the duration of the pilot.
However, if you can get to one of our existing hubs, you are more than welcome to become a member of it.
Check out our Hub Page for further details.
How you can support the MCN
To help us evidence genuine need and demand for the work we are doing, there are two things you can do, and both are FREE!
But there are a couple more ways you could help us!
Firstly, we need to prove there's also a suitable place for a hub where you are. How? By engaging in advance with the Station or Garrison to identify a building they would allocate to the MCN.
Here’s a list of our minimum requirements to help you with that conversation.
a. Good Wi-Fi
b. Natural Light
c. Kitchen facilities where members can refuel
d. A break-out area where members can relax and connect
e. Space for a minimum of 6 desks.
Secondly, by helping us raise awareness of the MCN and putting up posters where you think they'll be seen by military spouses or partners. If you think this is something you'd like to do, please contact us. We'd really appreciate your help!
