Latest news and updates from Qube

Hello from us all at Qube...

Did you know the 1st to 7th June is Volunteers Week? Qube currently has over 50 volunteers and they are the very heart of our team. Our volunteers work in a range of roles. They are our Dial-a-Ride drivers, passenger assistants, trustees, befrienders, shoppers, social group helpers, administrative assistants, receptionists, arts assistants, tutors and workshop leaders.

Each year they collectively give thousands of hours of their own time to help those who need it and their work has a life-changing impact on those we work with everyday.

So this month, we just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all our volunteers, past and present. We could not do any of the work we do without you.

Some of our latest news and services can be found below.
