Group Hub for local organisations

Recent graduate seeks community groups to trial new software for free

When local student, John Wheal, first volunteered his time to help run a university society, he faced all sorts of problems with managing group communications such as keeping members’ details private and organising sessions. Seeing this problem as an opportunity, he decided to use his software skills to create Group Hub, a website from which group organisers have the ability to simply and easily manage all group communications from one central place.

Two years later, having finished his degree in Computer Engineering, John is seeking 30 small community groups to trial the software for free.

Group Hub helps users to arrange meetings, store contact information, contact members directly and even track which members will be attending. All group members have a unique web-link that they can use to log on to the group page, and view all group communications.

John says, “Organising a group is a time-consuming, often frustrating and thankless process which can cause groups to break down and fail.”

“I created Group Hub to take that pain away from people who give their time and energy to their communities; so that they can ultimately speed up the time they spend on admin, and do more of what they love.”

The 30 free subscriptions will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis to any group organisers wishing to use the platform. To find out more and to claim your free subscription, visit A helpful video demo on how to use the site is available there.

About Group Hub

Groub Hub was created by founder and entrepreneur, John Wheal, when he recognised the frustrations faced by a group organiser, in effectively communicating to the group outside sessions.

Having recently completed his degree in Computer Engineering (MEng) and having worked on developing Group Hub over the last two years, the system is now available to group organisers across the UK.
