Support when you need it

For some, their businesses haven’t yet recovered from the effects of the pandemic. Others aren’t being supported by their employers to make working from home sustainable. And too many, particularly from groups underrepresented in tech, are missing out on getting to know people who work the way we work. This includes (but is not limited to): people of colour, LGBTQIA+ people, women and people with disabilities.

Sponsored Membership

  • Free and heavily reduced coworking

  • Reviewed every 3 months

  • Priority for people from groups underrepresented in tech

  • Funded by under-used coworking memberships and sponsors

"The Skiff is the 3rd co-coworking space I've worked in and by far it's my favourite. The people are very kind and welcoming."

Pierre Monnerville
Founder, Monnerville

"I had been working from home for about a year and I was scarily close to going crazy. One day I realised I hadn’t spoken to another human being in 48 hours and that’s when I knew I needed to shake things up. After researching a few co-working spaces, I decided The Skiff’s laidback atmosphere and vibrant social scene was exactly what I needed."

Lizzie Davey
Skiffmate since November 2016

When I moved to Brighton for my partner's job, working from home wasn't working for me.

I joined The Skiff because the people are friendly. I hoped it would be a way to start feeling connected to the city, to feel like it was a place I belonged not just a place I slept and went to the shops. The Skiff did all that for me and more.

I remained a member for years because of the motivation of the people that run The Skiff. They do it because they want an inclusive place like The Skiff to exist - it's not about the money.

Jack Garfinkel
Skiffmate since September 2018

"I choose The Skiff to work from as the focus is on individual coworkers.

Other spaces make most money from private office space. The office users inevitably end up using co-working space as their coffee shop/meeting space. That makes it hard for us freelancers to get any real work done.

At The Skiff we have a separate social space we can hang out in when we want a break from deep work."

Matt Oakes
Skiffmate since January 2017

"I was dismayed that I couldn't find any serviced offices or a coworking space in Haywards Heath."

Thomas Buck
Skiffmate since October 2017

"The Skiff seems unique in offering a more inclusive and collaborative experience."

Andy Mattock
Skiffmate since November 2015

"The space is dedicated to freelancers, not small businesses, so we don't get crowded out or treated like 2nd-class members as can happen in other Brighton co-working spaces."

Margaret Ousby
Skiffmate since January 2017

"I was working from home, and sometimes upstairs all day in the Jubilee library."

Cath Lloyd
Skiffmate since November 2014

"The folk are friendly techies & creatives, and you can find out what they do at the weekly Show & Tell, which are fund and educational."

Conrad Brunner
Skiffmate since January 2017

"Since day one of joining The Skiff I have always felt like a part of the community. I never once felt like I need to keep myself to myself, so I go there to work from somewhere different. Its inclusivity honestly sparks a sense of freedom that allows creativity and focus that I have been unable to find anywhere else."

Jack Tracy
Skiffmate since March 2019

"I joined The Skiff after looking at 5 other co-working spaces.

It is in the best location in Brighton. It has the best hours of opening - no 9to5 nonsense. And it has the best value for money.

Best all round!"

Mark Willett
Skiffmate since October 2018

“I joined in 2012 just after my eldest son was born. I was a former art student who had turned into a web designer.

It was clear from day one that The Skiff was special. Being around developers and creators in The Skiff gave me the confidence to start learning coding and new technologies. It ultimately came to define my business.

A chance encounter in The Skiff led to making and publishing games.

Would any of that happened without The Skiff? Maybe. But I’m not so sure as the first half of my career developed much slower without the chance encounters, inspiring conversations, tips and tricks that come from working around Skiffmates.”
