Destination Digital – FREE advice for women in Cambridgeshire: Cofficing back into the working world


Destination Digital gives women free support around new digital technologys - take a look and see how it could benefit YOU!

Sometimes writing this blog, and running this site has thrown me the odd curveball, and an amazing opportunity lands in my lap.

That was what happened a few weeks ago, when I found myself at the Cambridgeshire County Council (“CCC”) offices talking about my journey developing KiddyCharts and my championing of the new flexible workspace, the coffice.

I am, in fact, writing this from a coffice near me….ironically…laptop on the table, free Wifi and a cake in hand…

CCC have launched a brand new initiative to inspire women to use digital technologies to help them set up their businesses, and the service is totally free. Destination Digital was launched yesterday at the Future Business Centre in Cambridge.

Destination Digital is being funded by the government’s Women and Broadband Challenge Fund set up by the government to encourage women to use broadband services.

The project will provide women with:

  • Financial support for companies let by women.
  • Grants for activities for business networks
  • Assistance online in the form of a tookit around the use of new technologies for women in business
  • Access to training materials and courses for free between now and April 2015.

It is all FREE – so why wouldn’t you take a chance and have a look? Without digital technology, simply wouldn’t exist. I couldn’t manage the business, look after the children, or indeed, run the business without the broadband, and digital capabilities that I have learnt in the last few years. So why can’t you too?

Take a look at the video to see how I manage the digital world, and if you need assistance in starting off, why not drop them a line to or phone them on 01223 706123. You can even contact me, and we can see if we can help too :-D

You just never know where it might lead.

Helen Neale - Flexible working through 'Coffices'

This is NOT a sponsored post, I just love that this initiative is all about, and I like being on camera too *not*

Helen is a mum to two, social media consultant, and website editor; and this site is (we think) the only Social Enterprise parenting magazine! Since giving up being a business analyst when juggling travel, work and kids proved too complicated, she founded KiddyCharts so she could be with her kids, and use those grey cells at the same time. KiddyCharts has reach of over 1.1million across social and the site. The blog works with big family brands (including travel) to help promote their services, as well as offering free resources to parents of kids under 10. It gives 51%+ profits to Reverence for Life, who fund a number of important initiatives in Africa, including bringing running water and basic equipment to a school in Tanzania. Helen has worked as a digital marketing consultant (IDM qualified) with various organisations, including Channel Mum, Truprint, Talk to Mums, and Micro Scooters. She loves to be creative in the brand campaigns she works on. Get in touch TODAY!
