If you are planning to visit a specific workfromhub location and have accessibility concerns, we encourage you to reach out to our support team in advance by e-mailing email@example.com.

We encourage all our users to provide any additional feedback on our service with regard to accessibility, as we continue to develop our service to provide the best possible experience to our users.
What to expect
As you arrive at our hub, users will be able to access the door by taping the remote access button in the app under their booking. Users may also enter their unique access code if they prefer, which again can be found within the app. Our hub door is wheelchair accessible with a power assisted hinge to ensure the door is light and easy to open.
When in the space wheelchair users will be able to manoeuvre under the height adjustable desk. There is suitable space to store the desk chair to the right of the desk to maximise the space and for greater comfort.
Whilst working in the space, there is a second monitor screen that can be plugged into the users laptop for additional ease whilst working. Users can tailor their desk height to a position that is comfortable for them.
What if I need help?
Within the hub there is an emergency pull cord which will sound an alarm and cause lights to flash outside of the hub to capture rail staff's attention. Rail staff will be able to gain access and provide assistance if needed. There is an additional emergency number within the hub to call if you have any issues and an e-mail to correspond to also.
