Welcome to Indycube Community, supporting freelancers, contractors, homeworkers and the self-employed
Indycube is a Community Benefit Society that offers a membership package to address the precarious nature of self-employment, freelance working and the gig economy. We started in Wales in 2010 and now operate across the UK connecting people and places, having developed a network of coworking spaces that supports freelancers and micro businesses. Coworking helps our users to stay within their local communities, preserving their money, talent, and enthusiasm for use in the local economy.
In June 2017, Indycube embarked on a partnership with the Community Union to establish the first Union for freelance and independent workers in the UK. In 2016 there were 4.7 million self employed people working in the UK and yet as a community they are under represented in terms of employment rights, influence on policy making and in terms of access to benefits and services. The number of self employed workers is set to rise to 10 million over the next five years and this raises many questions about the type of workplaces we will need for the future and the type of world we want to live in.
We launched our benefits package because we know working independently is precarious. It costs £10 a month and is available to anyone - members don’t need to be a user of our spaces to join up. The fee is inclusive of membership to our CBS (basic membership is £1/month), meaning that anyone who signs up gets a share in the organisation. Join us now for unlimited access to benefits such as invoice factoring and cash-flow control, legal support and access to our member network, as well as access to our co-working spaces across the UK.
