Volunteering Opportunities at Qube

Qube is on the lookout for more volunteer Community Transport Drivers, Passenger Helpers and Social Group Helpers to enable us to retain and grow the fundamental services we offer in the local and wider Shropshire area.

Our transport service is essential for enabling people in the community to get out and about with ease and makes a huge difference in their lives. The Dial-a-Ride service makes up a large proportion of this service offering door-to-door transport for people without access to public transport or a car. They also offer a Shopmobility scheme, where Mobility Scooters and Wheelchairs are available to hire.

We aim to keep people connected and engaged, and running Social Groups is central to supporting this. The Qube Social Groups run twice weekly, offering an opportunity for local people to meet new friends, reminisce, learn different skills, take part in fun activities, and get any support where they need to.

Our Chief Officer, Kim Wootton says: “Our current volunteers undertake fantastic work on behalf of Qube and we are incredibly appreciative of the time they give.  The recruitment of additional volunteers will enable us to help more local people and we are keen to expand our services.  We want our volunteers to enjoy being a part of Qube and, therefore, we spend time matching individuals to the right project. As a Qube volunteer that could be getting involved in our transport service or helping out at a social group.”

Without our fantastic, friendly team of volunteers, we wouldn’t be able to make the difference they do in the community. We’d love to be able to offer our services to more of the local community so if you have some spare time and want to immerse yourself in a fabulous community project, please get in touch, email info@qube-oca.org.uk or call 01691 656882.
