RHACC helping small businesses to grow by opening new co-working space -The Bridge

RHACC (Richmond and Hillcroft Adult Community College) is helping to give small and growing businesses a head start with the launch of new flexible and affordable co-working office space.  The Bridge, named to reflects its aim to help businesses transition and grow, was officially opened at a launch event this week. Jane O’Shea, RHACC’s Independent Vice Chair Governor cut the ribbon in front of a number of special guests including Anne Newton, Richmond Chamber of Commerce CEO, Samantha Silver of Action Attainment, Michelle Cavanagh of Tracey Gilham Casting and Kathryn Williamson of Richmond Council for Voluntary Service.


The Bridge, conveniently and centrally located just two minutes from Richmond Station, has been kitted out with everything any new and upcoming business could need with high quality superfast WiFi, on-tap refreshments, shower and printing facilities and rest areas as well as work spaces designed to suit a variety of business requirements. Alongside the co-working office space there are also private offices and meeting rooms which can be booked by the hour or day.


Explaining the concept behind The Bridge, RHACC Principal Gabe Flint said: “Our mission is to provide the resources that enable adults to unlock their talent and fulfil their potential through learning, skills and enterprise. We see The Bridge as the perfect resource for small and developing businesses who are transitioning to larger/dedicated premises who can grow gradually without the burden of onerous costs and contracts. The Bridge also provides small businesses and lone workers a chance to network and socialise and share knowledge and ideas in a very well equipped, bright, light and modern office space.”


Situated in the heart of RHACC’s beautiful campus, The Bridge has its own access and benefits from extended opening hours including both Saturday and Sunday. The College also offers business users of The Bridge access to its extensive training expertise and IT support.
