Before June 2019 I was working from home and pretty unhealthy physically and emotionally. My work? Loved it. Not knowing what day it was and never leaving the house? Hated it. So, I created a coworking space for women in business going through the same thing.

The Ladies Who Trade Coworking Space is based within Pollard Yard, a shipping container village in Ancoats, Manchester. Our space is cosy, homely and most importantly: affordable.

I believe this is Manchester’s first all-female coworking space and the most affordable dedicated desk plan in the city centre.
