Settle Hub

Settle Community & Business Hub is a not for profit venture operating out of Unit 1, Commercial Courtyard just off Duke Street in the centre of town.

The Hub is available for a range of different uses, and we have created a focal point for community groups, charities, businesses and local residents to find out what is going on.

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.
