A workhub is a flexible workspace offering an ‘office when needed’ service for modern micro businesses and mobile workers, including those of you who work from home. Shared facilities typically include bookable ‘hot’ desks, formal and informal meeting spaces, high speed broadband and costly or space-hungry professional equipment.

Workhubs offer professional facilities that members can use when it suits them. Like a gym, they’re making smart use of space, serving more businesses than a traditional office can house.

Workhubs offer a professional front for your business, vital if you’re a small or start-up enterprise or a live/worker running your service from home. You can meet clients at a workhub, use its registered address, and have friendly, professional staff handle your phone calls and post.

Workhubs provide a relaxed working environment that facilitates informal business collaboration and networking. But there’s no hard sell and no awkward business breakfasts. You’ll find that exchanging ideas, advice and services comes naturally and, crucially, a workhub offers an antidote to isolation.

Most workhubs also offer business advice and support. They understand what small businesses need. They understand flexible working. Many are incubators for start-ups. Many offer training in useful professional skills or offer regular sessions with Business Link.

A new workhubs sector is emerging to service the needs of this market. Our aim is to connect this sector, helping people to find a workhub they want to use and helping workhub operators to pick up valuable ideas from each other.

Home-based professionals, company owners and freelancers now account for almost half of all businesses in the UK – and they are the fastest growing part of the UK workforce.

Yet they are often ‘under the radar’ of business support organisations. And despite preferring to usually work from home, they often feel isolated, with limited opporunities to collaborate and network.

This website is the UK HQ for all things workhub!

Workhubs Network CIC is a community interest company, a not-for-profit social enterprise dedicated to running workhubs and helping others to do so. 

We run this website to help all workhubs to link with each other and to gain a voice as part of an emerging national trend. We also offer delivery and consultancy services. We can help you analyse demand for a workhub in your area and advise on the best ways to set up and run one viably – based on our extensive knowledge of what works around the country and our own experience.

We also offer a start-up management package, setting up and launching workhubs on behalf of clients who want to reduce long term management costs for their facility.

Our headquarters is a National Pilot Workhub which we manage ourselves: The Workbox in Penzance. See its facebook page

All members of our team have experience in setting up, managing and working in workhubs.
