We're a community of over 200 people who have the freedom to choose where we work.We choose to spend part of our week at our shared work and social space in North Laine.You are very welcome to join us.

When you join The Skiff to escape the isolation of working from home, you get the benefit joining a community of over 200 like minded individuals who:
