Frequently Asked Questions

Can I visit without a booking/appointment?

Of course! The beauty of the Centre it that is has lots of lovely open space. In recent years we’ve zoned in on what we do and the details that make the Centre a great place to be. Our atrium space has been totally transformed into a lush, palmy casual working environment with free Wi-Fi and, our Café is able to serve refreshments to your table, regardless of where you are seated, so you have everything you could possibly need. Simply sign in at Reception and do your thing!

Do you have a manned Reception?

We certainly do. There’s always someone available at Reception between 7:45am and 5:45pm. Our friendly front of house team is here to give you a warm welcome and can assist you with most service related needs. Collectively, the team have worked at the Centre for over 50 years, so please do come and ask if there’s anything you need to know. Or, if you just fancy a chat.

Do you have car parking?

Yes! Parking is available to all tenants from as little as £80 per month for a dedicated parking space in our secure onsite car park. Visitors are welcome to use our visitor car park free of charge, subject to availability.

What is the Centre’s Connection with Halifax Opportunities Trust?

The Elsie Whitely Innovation Centre is the social enterprise part of Halifax Opportunities Trust. All the profits we gain from the Centre, through rent and hire of our facilities, either gets to invested into the Centre for improved services or back into the charity to fund the many amazing projects that have been set-up to support the local community. Find out more about Halifax Opportunities Trust.

What is the difference between casual working and flexible working?

Casual working is available in the atrium of the Centre only; we have a number of ‘desks’ for people to pop-in and do their work from their laptop. However, we can’t guarantee there’ll be space available and, as the café is also located in the atrium, the noise levels can get high at peak times. Our flexible working facilities are more private and guarantee you get a dedicated workspace in a serviced office. You can either book a desk in our co-working space, have something a little more permanent with a hybrid set-up, or go all in with our private workspace membership.

Where is the Elsie Whiteley Innovation Centre Located?

We are based in Halifax Town Centre, West Yorkshire. The Mill is located on Hopwood Lane, Halifax; just above the Halifax Play House and Windsor’s World of Shoes. You’ll probably see us, if you’re arriving by car, as our orange signs are visible from the flyover.
