The technology allows screen sharing and private areas away from the main reception/hub area to conduct meetings in a secure and confidential environment.
When visiting the VirtualHub you are initially added to the waiting area, and soon after this on of the team will admit you into the main area. Here you will be able to choose to have your camera off or on and have control over your audio device.
The Drop-In Lounge Area is where everyone can chat freely.
The Private Meeting Space are small rooms for Break-Away meeting which has proved invaluable for our Welfare Team and other visiting Welfare Officers to conduct private meetings.
The VirtualHub can also be used by smaller organisations and individuals to conduct meetings and get togethers (There is no charge for non-profits, charities and clubs). We ourselves use the VirtualHub to conduct training, meetings outside of the normal opening times, and can be easily opened outside of our normal meetings for hardship and crisis meetings.
