Meet the Directors
The Directors of The Hub have personal and/or professional experience of the issues faced by those who live and work in rural communities, particularly around health inequalities and caring responsibilities, where access to services can be difficult. We want to help address the issues of rural isolation, lack of access to services and promote social inclusion.
