An innovative new coworking approach is being trialled in Canberra.

Cowork Coplay provides a space for mothers to work while their children play.

Founder of Cowork Coplay, Claire Harris, is a working mum with a partner in the Australian Defence Force. As a long time advocate of coworking, Claire saw an opportunity to better support enterprising women with children, in particular Australian Defence Force partners.

The Cowork Coplay initiative is being trialled during October 2019 with support from the Duntroon Community Centre, where it will be hosted. If the trial is a success, then Claire hopes to offer the coworking program on a more permanent basis from 2020.
