The WDH Hub entrance

The WDH Hub in Wakefield city centre demonstrates our commitment to getting people online and tackling digital exclusion.

The Hub, in the Bull Ring shopping precinct, offers free internet access as part of a long term strategy to increase digital skills across all age groups.

The Hub also supports WDH’s bid to become a paperless organisation, encouraging people to become digital by default, save money, become more streamlined and effective.

Latest tenant survey figures show that almost 50 per cent of WDH tenants never access the internet, missing out on opportunities to save money, find employment and claim benefits.

At the Hub, our trained employees can:

  • Provide the skills and and confidence to those looking to get online for the first time
  • Provide help and guidance for anyone looking to use the web to look for a job
  • Provide help to access benefits or save money through the Switch and Save campaign

As well as computer terminals, iPads, and an interactive touch screen web-window which can be accessed 24 hours a day, the WDH Hub offers free Wi‑Fi for all customers.

It also serves as a service access point for existing WDH tenants.
