The Hub supports adults in our local community of Goring, Streatley, South Stoke and surrounding villages. We provide high quality, friendly and easily accessible support, social interaction and guidance - right at the heart of the community. We bridge the gaps in our society;
- so no-one feels lonely or isolated
- so everyone receives the help and support they are entitled to
- so people are connected to each other, and to organisations that can assist them.
We believe this will improve quality of life for all, and improve our community.
The Hub is operated by Q1 Foundation - a small, local registered charity, reliant on fundraising to run its services.
Our services include:
Providing guidance - friendly, local 1-1 advice in person or by telephone, email or video call (e.g. help with arranging care, or making benefit applications).
Connecting people - with each other for friendship, or with other relevant organisations.
Activities, talks and events - running clubs, classes, support groups and events.
Offering a safe place - a relaxed, dementia-friendly venue for the community to meet and chat and for carers to connect, or for those who are lost or afraid to seek refuge.
Volunteering opportunities - our active volunteer network provides invaluable assistance and support across the community in a variety of roles, including Hub Hosts and Activity Leaders, Hub Buddy Befrienders, and Volunteer Drivers.
Partnerships - with other organisations to achieve the best outcomes for our community.
