Qube Communities at Home

Qube has received funding from the National Lottery Community Fund, Arts Council and the Community Foundation for Staffordshire to support our new Communities at Home Project. As well as providing hot meals, telephone befriending and additional support where needed, the project will also enable us to provide activities for people to do at home. We are currently sending out fortnightly activity packs and newsletters to many of our members but are also making to activities available online for all to use.

The resources below have been made especially for the ‘Qube Communities at Home’ project by creative practitioners from across the country. Take a look at the videos and resource sheets below and have a go!

We want to see your work! Send us a picture of your work to art@qube-oca.org.uk we’ll share them online.
