Join our community of digital and social innovators in Manchester

The Federation is an ecosystem of digital and social enterprises. Our community is built on co-operative values of social responsibility, openness, honesty and caring for others.

Our home in the centre of Manchester offers flexible event, meeting and co-working spaces. We also have a podcast studio and a cafe.

Please note

We have now postponed all events and will not be taking bookings until further notice.

This is in line with the government’s advice relating to the coronavirus pandemic. Throughout the pandemic, we have remained open so any of our residents who may be unable to work from home can do so as safely as possible from The Federation.

The Federation team is committed to providing a safe and accessible environment for all co-working residents. We’ve made some temporary changes within the building to minimise the risk of infection. To find out more about these changes, visit our "Preparing for a safe return to The Federation" page.

We wish you good health and hope to be able to welcome you to The Federation soon.
