Our Story

WorkLife Central was founded by Louisa Symington-Mills in late 2012 with the aim of providing a relevant and convenient professional network for working mothers in London.

Originally known as Citymothers, in April 2014 Cityfathers was launched to provide a similar offering for working fathers. In November 2015, these networks were combined and rebranded as 'Cityparents' to reflect our fully inclusive ethos, the diversity of our member base and our wide-ranging offering.

In May 2022, the name Cityparents changed to WorkLife Central, reflecting the continued evolution of the programme to provide expertise, information and inspiration to all professionals, and its transition from an in-person offering to a wholly-online resource.

Today, WorkLife Central is an award-winning organisation offering a low cost, high value employee benefit.

We deliver a carefully curated programme of online content across topics relevant for home life, work life and wellbeing. All of our content is delivered by third party experts, who are carefully selected by us. We can also tailor content specifically to meet your organisation's need, through our In-House service.
