  • Jobs for local people, close to where they live
  • Prosperity for their owners
  • Numerous social and environmental benefits


  • Do you run a business?
  • Are you an entrepreneur?
  • Are you looking for a co-working space or meeting room?
  • Do you need business advice?
  • Would you like to connect with other businesses? 

 Fairfield City Council is supporting businesses of all sizes, in all sectors, and at every stage of development, through its Workary, whether you are an aspiring  entrepreneur, a start-up enterprise, a home-based business, or an established small-to-medium enterprise.
