Community working hubs, run under local libraries

There’s a trend for ‘co-working spaces’ for freelance workers, where they rent a desk in a shared office for a large fee. We could offer a public version of this in city centres, with membership attached to library membership and the booking system for a work space the same as for library computers.

Encourage co-operatives

Why should care of the elderly be handed over to the franchised operations of large US multinationals? We will encourage the formation of locally based co-operatives to care for the elderly in their area and get the contracts from the HSE to do so.
