Qube is an Oswestry based charity serving the needs of the local community through:
Community Transport: Dial-a-ride and community cars providing accessible transport services door-to-door and low-cost for people who cannot access public transport or who live in areas not served by local transport companies.
Arts and health: art exhibitions in our contemporary gallery space, creative workshops and events, arts in the community projects and original arts and crafts for sale.
Volunteering: our accredited Volunteer Centre offers volunteering advice and opportunities for individuals as well as supporting voluntary organisations and community groups through access to information, advice and guidance on training and funding for the sector and by promoting volunteering and local volunteering opportunities.
Care: We manage the countywide Shropshire Health and Social Care Information Providers project as well as shopping and support services
Community Facilities: Qube is a community building with a large and airy meeting room fully equipped for meetings, conferences and training. It also houses an art studio and a computer learning centre.
Courses and training
Qube offers an exciting and varied programme of courses throughout the year. Local people can learn a new skill, keep well, meet others and have fun!
Qube provides web-based, care information network. Our easy to use on-line database has links to hundreds of local and national charities and organisations, providing support to hundreds of individuals.
Our Tuesday and Thursday social groups offer weekly activities and friendship to anyone and especially those who feel isolated or who struggle to meet new people. Fun activities include crafts, Boccia, guest speakers and quizzes, and there’s always tea and cake!
Shop-mobility and wheelchair hire service
Qube helps local people to stay independent and on the move by offering a variety of electric scooters and wheelchairs for hire on a day/half day basis or long term lease.
All our services are supported by our fabulous volunteers, without whom we could not continue to operate.
Qube’s services and activities assist, inform and foster the skills and aspirations of the community and respond to people’s needs.
