The Workhouse, a visionary space resulting from the Workhouse Restoration project, is open for business. This remarkable initiative will bring together local entrepreneurs, businesses, students, and an array of support organisations to create a dynamic hub of innovation, collaboration, and growth opportunities.

The historic building has been extensively redeveloped through a collaboration project between South West College and Fermanagh and Omagh District Council. Funding of £2,343,000 was awarded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund to undertake this project, made possible by National Lottery players.

Through the Workhouse Restoration project, this landmark building has been thoughtfully designed with workspaces catering to various entrepreneurial needs

With state-of-the-art resources and a supportive community local entrepreneurs and freelancers can grow their businesses to new heights. Dedicated meeting spaces allow individuals and businesses to connect, share ideas, and explore potential collaborations, enhancing their business networks and fostering growth. The Workhouse also offers desk space, modern office spaces to facilitate the delivery of start-up programs and space for an anchor tenant to add value and expertise to the community.

The Workhouse is driven by its mission to create a vibrant community where people come together to collaborate, network, and support each other. Since its opening earlier this year, The Workhouse has hosted some great events, inspiring entrepreneurs coming together in the space, and remote workers benefiting from this dynamic environment.

Kate McGrath, Business Manager at The Workhouse, expressed her enthusiasm for the project, stating, "The Workhouse represents a transformative space, where we can create a vibrant community of like-minded individuals, providing opportunities for networking, collaboration, and business growth. The Workhouse is set to be a space for creativity and entrepreneurship, driving innovation and fostering economic prosperity within the region.’
